It’s a dream of many creatives to have their work featured on the cover of The New Yorker. Unfortunately, only a few have had the privilege of reaching it.

Illustrators Peter Ryan, Chris Gash and Jack Dylan are three of the countless artists who have had their artworks repeatedly snubbed by the prestigious magazine.

“It’s like scaling Everest,” Dylan says in a feature by Artsy.

The trio felt that it would be a waste if the submissions of creative professionals never saw the light of day because they were rejected. They have therefore set up ‘The Not Yorker’, a site that breathes life into declined or late The New Yorker illustrated cover entries.

“We encourage illustrators to submit their rejected covers… so that they might have the opportunity to be rejected by us as well,” the team jokes.
