Because seriously, who DOESN’T love a chuckling McConaughey? Behind the scenes at our May 2012 cover shoot, McConaughey chatted with Richard Linklater about football and what to do about the upcoming 20 year anniversary of a little movie called Dazed and Confused.If you didn’t feel old before you read that sentence, now you do.

Every month, I get to take reference photos of Associate Editor David Courtney, AKA The Texanist, for our wonderful illustrator Jack Unruh. Today happens to be Mr. Unruh’s birthday, so to celebrate I’m kicking off our series of Before/After posts featuring Jack’s mind blowing work and my paltry reference photos. From all of us at Texas Monthly, happy birthday Jack! Thanks for bringing the Texanist into full color for all these years!
