I’ve posted about Oliver Vernon before. I really like his gouache paintings. He has a show opening on Friday, at Meta Gallery in Toronto.

Are the Similarities Between Trump and Hitler TIME Covers Purely Coincidental?

TIME Magazine has just announced their “Person of the Year” is Donald Trump. Twitter users were quick to point out the striking similarities between this cover, shot by photographer Nadav Kander, and the Adolf Hitler cover from April 1941. Hitler was also named “Person of the Year” in 1938.
