The One Club held their annual Hall of Fame induction ceremony at New York’s Gotham Hall and quite the induction it was. The late Steve Jobs was the first client ever to honored for his contributions to advertising and Lee Clow accepted on his behalf with some great stories as well as probably that rare chance to experience the great “The Crazy Ones” ad with Job himself doing the voice over. Joe Pytkta, he (in)famous director noted for his work on Perrier, Nike (think Michael Jordan), with the Beatles and too many other incredible commercials to mention, was inducted; as well as legendary copywriter Paula Green (Avis: We Try Harder). Additionally, Rob Lawton was there as the first ever teacher to be inducted. In keep with tradition, many previous inductees, the greats of advertising were there.
It made for a VERY memorable -- if somewhat pressured -- formal portrait session.

Original Mad Man
Member of the One Club Hall of Fame --
He designed some of most (in)famous magazine covers ever for ESQUIRE Magazine.
He's the author of a great new book "DAMNED GOOD ADVICE" which you can hear him discuss on NPR
AND: He’s now employing my portrait of him as his promo shot for press & speaking engagements.
It's a privilege to know him and I am terrifically honored.
