Roy Orbison's Lost Rolling Stone Cover
Don't do a double take, folks.
That really IS Roy Orbison on the cover of Rolling Stone--as interpreted by Out Professionals' Twilla Duncan in a marvelous mockup.
Duncan gave me the backstory: "My 'nephew' Christopher Casey, senior at NYU film, and two of his friends also in the film program, asked me to 'create' Roy Orbison for a three-part webisode assignment for school.
"Chris had seen me do Orbison for a friend's 50th birthday bash. (Quite good if I do say so.) How could I resist?"
I'm glad she didn't. This is way cuter than my Ebony cover as Diana Ross.
