Identify the polyhedral dude, who is depicted in this TIME magazine cover dated “i don’t know” years back.



This cover was drawn by this illustrator.



I’d be giving you the added joy of identifying him as well, for the sole reason that he drew something as arbit as this, and managed to get it published in a very modest National magazine.





Cracked by everybody.
