The feature story was about Evan Barden and his project called One Hundred Dates. Barden, a Fairfield ’08 grad, is going to try to go on 100 dates within a year. He then posts his dates on his blog. He is quite a funny and quirky character, and I wanted to have the cover reflect that in some ways. One of my assistant editors Kelsey Guerin wrote a deadline story on him in record time, so she should also be applauded for her efforts. In the beginning, I included only women in the photo illustration, but I read that Barden is more than glad to go on a ‘Gay Date,’ so I added a few men in the crowd. See if you can spot them. All in all, I am extremely proud of my efforts for this week’s cover illustration.
