Have you finished filing your taxes yet? In America, taxes are due on April 15th (It used to be March 15th, as you’ll see on the older covers below). It’s a moment when the entire country is brought together - we all suddenly have the same thing to complain about. Sharpen those #2 pencils, and send me your sketches!

To enter each week’s contest, please send sketches on this week’s theme. Use the submissions page or email jpegs to email@example.com. I prefer sketches to finished work and good ideas to good drawings. The deadline is Thursday at noon (NYC time). The themes on the Blown Covers website closely mirror what I suggest to the New Yorker artists I already work with. This blog and contest are informal and not affiliated with the magazine but I’m always on the lookout for ideas. Please keep submissions confidential in case they are selected for later publication. The winning sketch (according to my own subjective whims) will be posted here on Friday.
UPDATE: The winners of this contest are now here
