Gosh! Did I ever post the photo reference I used for the header of this very blog? No, I'm sure I didn't. Here you are:

Apropos! Before I forget! There is an Eustace Tilley Book-Bag Cover Contest over at The New Yorker. The deadline is Midnight on January 18th. If you're fast and talented (and a permanent resident of the US or Canada), this is your contest: "Eustace Tilley appeared on our first cover, in 1925. To celebrate our 87th anniversary, we invite readers to create a book-bag version of our iconic dandy. Twelve winners will be featured in a slide show curated by The New Yorker’s art editor, Françoise Mouly. One grand-prize winner will get their design printed on a Strand Bookstore tote bag and a $1,000 Strand shopping spree."
Those duckish and bullish Tilleys here are some older designs I did a couple of years ago for the Huckleberry Finn project (a project that never got the green), I just thought it would be nice to post them along with the info about the Eustace Tilley contest.
