Illustration Friday - "Fail" I failed to get this on the February cover of the New Yorker


Hi Everyone....


Today's theme was a tough one...at first I was going to do something fun like a little kid with a failing grade...but then I thought about the cover idea I submitted too late to the New Yorker....

The true meaning of fail was me not getting it there in time....


Hope you enjoy it!


Happy Friday Everyone...


Cheers,

Diana

I had a hard time with the theme of FAIL too, but I like your spin on it, as it is something very relatable to many an artist in the field. Interesting illustration with really great vibrant color... maybe it will find a home with another magazine?!

Whether or not you failed to get this in on time.....just know that it is a very meaningful piece. I love your use of vibrant colours and the way that you can incorporate so many details....one has to look at your pieces again and again.

You may have failed to meet the deadline, but what a "successful" piece of art!

If you had gotten it there on time would it have made a world a better place?
