the new yorker's eustace tilley contest 2009

My piece won:

This is the second year the New Yorker has invited the public to submit their own interpretations of the magazine's iconic mascot, Eustace Tilley, originally drawn by Rea Irvin for the magazine's first cover in 1925.

12 winners were chosen from over 300 submissions. You can see a slideshow of all 12 on the New Yorker's website here

My piece also appears, along with three others, in the current issue of the New Yorker on the stands now.

Two of my pieces won last year too. You can see those along with the rest of the 2008 winners at the New Yorker site as well.

Gary, That is awesome! It took me a while to see him, but man, really great and subtle. I like the approach too, more of this!

Fan-freaking-tastic and congrats on this one. I'm sure it doesn't hurt the resume (or ego) to find yourself in the New Yorker.

Hello Gary, this is alberto.

That is a cool piece. I'm glad to see it was selected. Loved the other selected pieces as well. Mr Burns is awesome.

Take care :)
