New York-based glossies The New Yorker and New York Magazine are out today with covers that reflect the new realty of life in the midst of a pandemic.
The New Yorker’s cover is titled “Critical Mass” and was drawn by Christoph Niemann. As Niemann tells Françoise Mouly in a short making-of post,
[T]he genesis for this image, the idea of a sneezing domino standing on top of a globe packed with other domino pieces, came to me when I was lying in bed, trying to fall asleep. ... Only the next day, when I sat down to turn the concept into a proper artwork, did I realize that the globe and the pieces actually resemble a virus.
