>This is the sort of thing I should have started doing once I had been bitten by the mag bug but instead I've let mine go yellow, dusty or they have been destroyed and cut-up for collage purposes.  Then there's the teensy fact that I'm not exactly an adept sketcher either.  Either way, my metaphorical spiritual hat goes off to John Paul Thurlow's project of sketching out every cover for every magazine he owns plus a few he wished he owned, with 70 covers already done and dusted (unearthed through Dazed's Twitter).  I'm guessing that doesn't mean EVERY single issue or if it is, I hope he doesn't get logo-fatigued.
