In my last entry I mentioned submitting a cover design to the good people at The New Yorker. My idea was rejected but they were nice enough to take a look and one day I'll try again. I've got a list of ideas but not enough time to make them a reality.
The illustration above is a detail of my cover submission. The idea came from the protests and riots that were following the torch prior to the Summer Olympics in China. I took Picasso's Geurnica and altered it to include riot police with a horse, a runner with torch, Tibetan monks, protesters and both the Tibetan and Chinese flags.
I did a series of ads that ran in all the major magazines including The New York but one day I'll do a cover, promise!
