Eustace Tilley Contest

Every year, The New Yorker hosts a contest for artists to depict Eustace Tilley, the magazine's mascot. Contestants send in pictures and images of the mascot, and The New Yorker selects finalists.

If you go to this website at The New Yorker's website, you can browse this year's finalists in the Eustace Tilley contest. They are very unique, creative, and inventive. And they're all different too.

If you were going to depict The New Yorker in a mascot, what would it be? How would you represent the magazine in 2009? Would it be different than a different year?

Let's see what some new ones from this year and other depictions look like:

And last year's entries...

So what do you think of the entries? Which are your favorites or favorite?
