The Elegant Duck

For a full poster-sized front page of the University of Oregon student newspaper's 1981 Fall Fashion Supplement titled The Elegant Duck, I gave the University's ducky mascot an air of flair by playing on the New Yorker magazine's iconic dandy Eustice Tilley peering at a butterfly.

This gave the newspaper a spot of class when it hit the streets, even when laying half disintegrated in the gutter after a heavy rain.
