A couple months back I had posted that my entry into the New Yorker Eustace Tilley contest had been selected as one of the finalists. I had assumed that they had also already selected the grand prize winner. I was wrong.
I was contacted a little while ago and told that they had chosen my drawing as the winner. This means that they have now printed my drawing on a book tote and are selling it at the famous bookstore "The Strand" in New York.
They sent me a few samples of the bags, and I have to say it is quite odd (in the best possible way) to see my drawing printed directly on the bag. I can not, though, quite bring myself to walk around with one of them. I would feel too self-conscious.
