new yorker eustace tilley cover competition
here's one of the pieces I submitted.
the new yorker is having a competition: to create a cover with the iconic dandy and man about town, Eustace Tilley, who has just turned 83.
It's become a tradition to have a Tilley cover every February

this year's entries
It was so much fun to do, and many of the entries were incredibly clever and well done.
The prize is to have a "virtual" cover shown on the new yorker.com website.
I've always thought that would be a great thing, to be on the cover of the new yorker, so I guess this is "virtually" as good.
I also collaborated with gary on the one (I came up with the concept - and here is his take on it)
