Michael Phelps, Illustrated (Literally)

Michael Phelps Sport Illustrated Cover

There are so many things I wanted to say about this Michael Phelps’ Sports Illustrated Cover as Sportsman of the Year, but I’ll just make it brief and skim to the important bits; the good, the bad and the ugly. First off, good news for us furfans because the fuzz has returned to its rightful place. Of course we don’t get to see the whole shebang, which brings me to the bad. Why is he wearing a shirt? It’s a pretty clever idea to make it wet but I don’t see the point of it being there.

And now, the ugly. What in the Photoshop’s SMUDGE tool hell did they do to his face? I know he doesn’t have much pretty and a bit buttery at times but this is too much! There’s some serious firing need to be done in the art department at the SI’s office, because it looks like someone pasted his face onto that (delicious) body and smudge it to oblivion in like 2 minutes. Oh well, at least the fuzz took some of my attention away from that (not) hot Photoshop mess. Leave Michael Phelps’ face alone!
