Brilliant New Yorker Cover Captures Sandy Psyche

The New Yorker revealed the cover of this week’s issue, which comments on Hurricane Sandy, the blackouts of lower Manhattan, and the upcoming election. Artist Adrian Tomine described how he ended up connecting the storm’s destruction with the election: “Where I was in Brooklyn, I don’t think I would have even known that there was a major storm happening,” he said. “So I spent the whole night glued to the Internet and watching everything unfolding, just being shocked that this kind of dramatic destruction was happening just miles outside my home. And I started thinking about how it would affect the election…and somehow these two significant events just came together into that one image for me.”
