the new yorker's eustace tilley contest 2011

My piece won:

For the fourth year now, The New Yorker has solicited readers’ takes on Eustace Tilley, the magazine’s mascot. Tilley, the Regency dandy, is the creation of art editor Rea Irvin and has been on the cover of almost every anniversary issue—including this year’s—since his first appearance, on the d├ębut issue, in 1925.

Twelve winners were selected from over 600 entries. You can see a slide show of all twelve, including mine, on The New Yorker's website here.

This is the fourth year I've won. Here are my winning images from 2010, 2009, and 2008. You can also see slide shows of all past winners on The New Yorker's site.

This year, for a twist, a Grand Prize winner will be selected from among the twelve and will have their winning image made into a Strand Bookstore tote bag. The Grand Prize winner will be announced in the Spring, when the bag is ready. Wish me luck!

UPDATE: The Grand Prize Winner has been chosen and the winning tote bag can be seen at the Strand Bookstore. Congrats to Michael Clayton.
