“How to Build an Autocracy”

Jeffrey Smith has been busy at work for the March 2017 issue of The Atlantic! Jeff created a cover and two article openers for the magazine featuring Donald Trump in his new role as President. These articles explore in detail how Trump can become an authoritarian and how civil society can fight back.  Jeff’s dramatic watercolor work brings a unique gravity to the subject.  Here are the final images, but to see Jeff’s process, head over to his blog here!
