The Year That Never Was

T ::  a collection of rejected New Yorker cover ideas.

the first one was for Summer / Fiction (actually went to final on it)

this one was for Fall / of the news-paper industry.


here is one about Winter / Valentine's day / over-heated apartments / relationships

this was predicting a tough year by depicting a preemptively spent New-Year's Baby.
was an alright year after all, it turns out.

  2. You achieved an amazing symmetry in the composition on that summer fiction piece. So beautiful, so tranquil.

  9. Concept of this post is awesome. I love the falling New Yorker leaves. That would have been such a beautiful image.

  11. They're not leaves of The New Yorker, they're leaves of the New York Times.

    And the fall cover is magnificent. I wish I could get a print of it.

  12. I just saw your first piece on display at the Society of Illustrators! I really liked it - too bad it didn't go to print. :(

  16. Would love a print of the apartment one, with or without the new yorker name on it. Any chance I can order one?

  17. that's crazy these got rejected, especially considering a lot of the covers that actually get printed. not to diminish these at all. they are awesome. if memory serves, weren't the covers to that top shelf anthology also proposed new yorker covers?
    either way, stellar work as always.
