Draper Gets Chucked

Hello internets.  I realize I’ve been away for sometime, but despair not…for new material is coming  your way!  Here’s something to whet your whistle whilst I whittle away at some new projects:

As a New Yorker, it’s been difficult to avoid the recent Mad Men advertising onslaught.  I guess this recent image is in response to the pervasiveness of Don Draper’s falling, flailing, featureless form plastered in every subway station on the island.  Why I translated Mr. Hamm’s of-an-era visage through the stylistic lens of the most-admirable Chuck Close (if you don’t know Chuck Close, go find out about him, he’s incredible!) I’m not entirely certain.  Does that ambiguity, intentional or not, qualify this as a mash-up?
