The New Yorker is having a contest! All you have to do is draw Eustace Tilley. Who? The New Yorker explains: "Eustace Tilley was originally drawn by Rea Irvin, the magazine’s first art editor, for the cover of the first issue of The New Yorker, in 1925, and has returned for nearly every anniversary issue since." That's him on the first issue cover above. Info on how to enter the Eustace Tilley Contest is here. You can also see the contest entries so far on the New Yorker's Flickr group here. Deadline is January 24. Favorite submissions will be featured on newyorker.com along with this year’s anniversary issue. Good luck!
