So about a month ago, Grease and I were contacted by the AARP Magazine to do a typographic illustration for an editorial assignment about traveling. We were super excited about it until we found out what type of subject matter they wanted, which is when we lost our minds, A 65 Mustang! If there’s one thing we love to illustrate more than any other, it would be Muscle Cars. So we jumped at the opportunity and hit the gas. Below are some graphics of the final piece, an alternate version with a 65 mustang GT 500, and some sketched concepts that we originally presented without the actual car. Thanks to Dian for giving us the opportunity to work on such a fun project. www.aarp.org/magazine

- Established in 1958, AARP The Magazine is a bi-monthly magazine published by AARP, which focuses on aging issues.
- The magazine is sent to every AARP member, and thus is the largest circulation magazine in the United States; it has held that position since the late 1980s.
- Circulation = 24.4 million People.
