Time for Art

R. Crumb, Rejected New Yorker Cover, 2009, watercolor, ink, and graphite on paper, 14 1/2 x 10 5/8 inches. Courtesy the artist, Paul Morris, and David Zwirner, New York, Copyright ©Robert Crumb, 2009.

So allegedly The New Yorker rejected this R. Crumb Cover.

Let us not focus on the history of this piece but on the piece itself.

As a person that dabbles in art myself AND crossdress I actually think it works well as a piece of art to include "inside" The New Yorker. As a cover, on the other hand, it seems too busy.

What do you think? Would this piece work as a cover for the New Yorker Magazine?
