What's Eustace Been Smokin'?

(Click to view large)

This was my entry for the The New Yorker's 2010 Eustace Tilley cover contest. I didn't win, but I sure enjoyed creating this illustration. My entry's caption:

"In order to face our fast-paced modern world with all its tribulations, a buttoned-up dandy like Eustace Tilley might benefit from herbal medicinal treatment."

Here are the actual winners, darn them all.

  4. Hi Emily, thanks. :) I drew this with india ink brush pens and the small lines with micron pens, then I scanned it all in and colored it digitally with Photoshop.
