While some of the recent bloggers-get-book-deals phenom has been a little crazy (“I Can Has Cheezburger” anyone?), here’s an internet personality with some real talent. Meet John Paul Thurlow. He’s an illustrator with a passion for magazine covers. After drawing his own interpretation of major magazine covers and sharing them with the world on his blog, his New Year’s resolution for 2010 is to present 100 of his best illustrations in Covers, a limited-edition book. The magazine cover choices vary, from Lady Gaga on V to Natalie Portman on Another magazine, and even older classics like issues of The Face. John Paul also plans on putting a few record covers in the mix. Use it to enhance your ever-growing library of fashion books, or just liven up your walls with his talent. A couple more looks, after the jump.
