The New Yorker’s Eustace Tilley Contest

The New Yorker was (until yesterday at 9 AM) holding a competition to create your own version of the iconic cover character, Eustice Tilly. The contest was open to anyone, and the entries are all pretty great. My favorite one hands down though was the image above, Eustace vs. The Gates. Obviously Christo’s saffron monsters are too much for the dandy, yet he still stands poised as ever behind it.

You can check out the rest of the entires on the New Yorker’s Contest Flickr. Winners of the project will be announced on February 4th.
