From singular music to singular illustrations today. Like all the New Yorker covers by Eric Drooker, who better than a Manhattan artist to keep the magnificent art in those weekly covers?
Eric, born and raised on Manhattan Island as you may know is an award-winning author of several books, including “Flood! A Novel in Pictures” and “Blood Song: A Silent Ballad.” He’s the Animation Designer on the new feature film, “Howl” and his New Yorker covers are one of those new great examples of the new American art scene.
“Visualizing answers to artistic questions is a full-time job. I enjoy solving problems that challenge my powers of creativity. Most of my strongest images spring from dreams which have haunted me over the years. The Big City has been a recurring dream all my life, and fittingly, is the subject of much of my art.”
(you can see all covers of the NY mag in their website) or buy them at his website (where you’ll discover he’s much more than a simple magazine cover illustrator).
