Eustace Tilley Collage Homage

I decided to enter the New Yorker’s “Eustace Tilley” contest this year.

Eustace Tilley is the iconic character that appeared on the first New Yorker cover, in 1925. For the last few years they’ve held an annual contest where they invite artists to submit their own interpretation of Eustace.

My collage to the left is a fairly direct interpretation of the original Eustace made entirely from New Yorker covers. I created the image using bits and pieces of about 30 covers from the last year and a half of the magazine.  Sort of an homage to both the magazine itself and the artists who have adorned its cover.

Freakin’ Dumpers!

I took this picture during a trip to the grocery store yesterday.  Even though I haven’t officially worked a retail job in almost 5 years now, I still get angry when I see this.

At the craft store I used to work at, this literally happened every single day. The type of drink varied with the weather, but 365 days a year you could count on finding at least one cup of some kind left sitting on a shelf or fixture.

Shout out in Cul De Sac

My friend Richard Thompson, creator of the comic strip Cul De Sac, gave me a shout out in Wednesday’s strip. In an uncanny coincidence, this is exactly how my career as a cartoonist started!

From Richard’s blog:

“This is an oblique shout out to my friend Norm Feuti who draws the wonderful strip Retail. Originally, the salesman was named “Norm Grumbels” after the department store in Retail, but it got changed. Norm Feuti is nothing like the character here portrayed, though I’m sure he’s had customers like dis guy.”
