Mens Style/ Lew Keilar
This commission originally had Steve Mcqueen to be depicted as a full body shot, split-down-the-middle fashion disaster on one side/ fashion icon on the other as the way to illustrate the "do's" and "don'ts" of mens fashion. I argued Steve McQueen, being a Mens Style kinda guy, should NEVER be anything but cool. So the guys in the lineup became the faceless fashion criminals and Steve the exemplar of mens' chic. The layout also allowed me to do a more detailed character study of a truly classic Hollywood star.
