It has been a very long time since Ever Meulen last created the cover for Humo, the magazine in which he published his first illustrations and for which he created some of his most famed imagery. This week though, the wait is over – Ever was asked to create the cover of the issue that coincides with the start of the FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
The illustration has everything you’d want from Ever : skewed perspectives, Magritte-like layering of objectds and many, many little in-jokes. The only thing that mars the picture a little, are the many little titles that seem to have been added by the magazine’s lay-out department hinting at the various features in the issue. But at least they follow the image’s lines and dynamics.
