We haven't gotten much in way of promos for the new season of Mad Men yet, but we're pretty sure that it's safe to say this new poster by veteran illustrator Brian Sanders makes up for it. Apparently, the poster is so meticulously put together that it includes seven major plot clues - likely involving the police cars (they don't look happy), the street signs (the stop sign is especially ominous), the hand Don Draper is holding (Megan? Is it Megan?), and, of course, the other Don Draper to his left (secret evil twin?).
The story behind the poster is particularly interesting. According to the New York Times, creator Matthew Weiner actually submitted a lot of work by Sanders from the 1970's to the show's marketing team looking for them to recreate the look for the new season. When the right look wasn't able to be achieved, the marketing team looked up who had done the illustrations, and discovered it to be Sanders. "They said: ‘Hey, we’ve got the guy who did them. And he’s still working. His name is Brian Sanders,'" Weiner explained.
