  2. Good one! I can't believe they rejected it. Thanks for sharing it anyway.

  3. great composition and energy, the only thing it seems to lack is a definite 'NYC quality'.

    I've checked out every New Yorker cover ever made on coverbrowser. If you proposed a 'subway passengers' painting, something with a bit of everyday grit mixed with a rare flash of sentiment, it would be accepted in a heartbeat.

  4. If it makes you feel any better, we looked at your work the other day in our Illustration History class.

  9. Haha, pretty humorous twist on current issues at hand. I guess sometimes Art Directors don't have similar taste in humor.

  11. That would have been so politically appropriated and so funny ! You should finish it in color Peter ! We could even launch a book with New-Yorker's rejected covers ! (with a bunch of other artists part of the short list)

  12. I would like to see that one finished too!
    Did they ever tell you why they didn't want to run with it? Was it just too editorial in nature? Too jokey for them?
