Eustace Tilley Contest

"Madame X" by Claire B. Cotts

The New Yorker is advertising for submissions to its annual contest to re-interpret the magazine's famous dandified mascot, who appeared on the very first cover in 1925, a cover that has been reprinted every year since.

1925 cover by the magazine's art director, Rea Irvin, who based it
on an 1834 portrait of Alfred, Comte d'Orsay, show below

Details and galleries of past entries are located here.  Below are a few recent winners that your Head Trucker finds amusing.  Any artists among Blue Truck readers who care to give it a shot?

"Ode on a Grecian Tilley" by Michael Clayton

If the way to a man's (my) heart is through his brain, I am smitten.
I never know what I shall find in terms of the flavor of your posts, but am always thrilled to learn and discover.
Elegant man you are, and pretty sexy too in my humble opinion. You are the most sophisticated cowboy I ever saw!
