My good friend Mike Isaac sent over info about some nice Martin Ansin illustrations in the current issue of Wired. You might remember Mike as being the great guy that will eventually do some writing for the site. That may still happen eventually, but they’ve got him pretty busy over at Forbes. Anyway, here’s what he had to say about it, with scans below. Enjoy!
If you don’t spend enough time on Facebook already, October 1st brings the North American wide release of “The Social Network”, the heavily-discussed biopic based on the founding of the social media internet giant. There’s a story on what went into creating the film in the most recent issue of WIRED, with accompanying illustrations by OMGPosters favorite, Martin Ansin (the latest issue of The New Yorker has a very good write-up on Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg as well, albeit without the excellent illustrations). As of this post, the magazine content isn’t posted to WIRED’s website yet, so pick the October issue up from newsstands now to see Ansin’s work. Or, if you want to hunt through your stack of old pornos in the basement, check out the June 2010 issue of Playboy for Ansin’s rendition of Wayne Coyne in the magazine’s interview with The Flaming Lips frontman.
