A finalist in the Magazine Publishers of America 2007 Cover of the Year:
For its Best & Brightest issue, Esquire asked illustrator Marion Deuchars to draw the coverline, which is one complete sentence. With George Clooney holding a pencil, the implication is that Clooney hand wrote those coverlines. The cover garnered attention not only on the newsstand but from designers and artists everywhere. It also is a twist on what has become known as the signature Esquire cover of crowding the cover with lines while keeping the message clear.
