Jan. 19, 2020, issue: β€œIn this illustration, I depicted the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. surrounded by multicolored clouds β€” I was inspired by 1960s-era aesthetics β€” that represent not only the ambition of his vision, but also the breadth of his societal influence. Since he stood for love and respect among all people, I wanted to use a warm palette, rather than the cool blue tones often used to portray him.”
