I'm generally a big fan of Oprah and especially her magazine but this cover made me especially happy! Love the chalk art and the artist behind the cover design, Dana Tanamachi. It's a great juxtaposition of simple tools like chalk and a blackboard combined with the sophisticated skill of hand-lettering--and on a national mainstream magazine.
A few examples of Dana Tanamachi's work with Ralph Lauren and West Elm...(photos courtesy Dana Tanamachi's blog):
My favorite remains the colorful installation she's done for this month's Oprah Magazine.
This issue was all about renewal and self-expression, as January publications tend to be but there was one exercise in particular that was a revealing challenge: write your autobiography in 6 words!!! What do you come up with?
