The result pays homage to the iconic Saturday Evening Post covers of illustrator J.C. Leyendecker.
"But after drawing my layout, I discovered that the smart folks at Irrational Games had ALREADY done this concept with a few Post parody Game Informer covers," Garner wrote on his DeviantArt page. "But to me they didn't look particularly like Leyendecker's art, who had such a distinctive style, so I said screw it and just moved forward with my original design.
"Now, my version doesn't necessarily look like Leyendecker's stuff either (i.e. no where near as good), but I did try make it recognisable as such in the very least while still throwing in my personal stylistic touches."
And those touches look great, just great.
