Derek Hess Playboy December 1971 Print On Sale Today

"When the idea to draw nudes on adult magazine covers came to me, Playboy was the obvious choice. The main reason for the 1960's and 1970's covers was due to my formative years, those issues were my first exposure to naked women, thanks to my Dad and the top shelf of his closet. Another reason is the integrity Playboy has. There is no shock. There are tasteful photos that compliment, not degrade women. They also withstand the test of time, which these have or I wouldn't be working on them some 40 years since they were published. Out of the few hundred of these covers I worked on, these were the final choices to debut the print series, which was extremely difficult. It’s also a main reason why there book is in the works — which has Hugh Hefner’s blessing — to cover more of them. We decided on these three pieces for a few reasons, the drawing fundamentals, the composition, and that these were basically a few that I was really having fun with." - Derek Hess
