Vector Illustrator Stanley Chow

Manchester, England

Stanley Chow has a terrific ability to boil down characters into simple illustrations. His trademark “hollow eyes” seem to speak volumes and look right through you. Kind of like a great white shark before it takes a bite out of you. Either way – we love this style and adore the way he breathes new life into the personalities that we have come to know. Rock on Stanley.

MAD MEN – Opening credits (video)


What you are, what you want, what you love doesn’t matter. It’s all about how you sell it. From AMC and the Emmy® Award-winning executive producer and writer of “The Sopranos” Matthew Weiner, comes Mad Men, a provocative new prime time drama about how to sell the truth. Set in 1960 New York, the daring new series is about the lives of the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Madison Avenue advertising, an ego-driven world where key players make an art of the sell while their private world gets sold.

This is the open credits. We were so impressed by it that we are now curious about the show. Does anyone in the Anchorpoint community follow it? Is it worth looking for? Some of the clips we have seen paint a real shady portrait of the advertising world of yesteryear. then again, today’s game has many similarities.
