Don Draper (Jon Hamm)

I think Mad Men, Matthew Weiner's series about hard-drinking, fast-living advertising execs in '60s Manhattan, is hands-down the best show on TV right now. 

This portrait of Don Draper (brilliantly played by Jon Hamm) was a blast to draw. It was fun trying to capture the classic Hollywood handsomeness of Don/Jon without resorting to generic stereotypes (i.e., comic book shorthand). By the way, in case you haven't heard Mad Men has been renewed for three more seasons! This calls for a celebration - triple martini lunch anyone?

(Ps: check out this article about the real-life Don Draper - below. Really fascinating!)
