Congratulations, Jerrold!

The New Yorker recently ran an illustration contest in which they invited artists to submit their contemporary interpretation of the iconic Eustace Tilley, the magazine's "presiding dandy." Winners were selected to appear in the current (February 11th/18th 2008) issue. They received nearly 300 entries, which you can see here.

A brilliant handful were selected for reprinting in the magazine. One of winners, "Leather Daddy Eustace," was drawn by ace cartoonist and Ukulelia pal Jerrold Connors, host of the popular and value-packed Ukulele Boogaloo. If I were a completely narrow-minded geek, I might be slightly miffed that Jerrold didn't submit a uke-playing Eustace, but who am I to argue with genius.

Congratulations, Jerrold. You done good!

Way to go! I saw the selected art work in the New Yorker but I didn't make the connection.
