Jenny Kroik’s illustrations are featured in her blog for The New Yorker, A Surprise Ending for Westsider Books.

“Last week, we heard that the small bookstore Westsider Books, on the Upper West Side, was closing its doors after thirty-five years. Saddened by the news, the artist Jenny Kroik went to Broadway and Eightieth to report on what was going on.”

JENNY KROIK: 2nd NEW YORKER COVER

“I’m on the subway all the time,” the artist Jenny Kroik says, about her inspiration for this week’s cover. “It’s a great place to let your imagination loose and get ideas. You’re surrounded by so many people and stories.”  “I saw a young girl glued to the window, fascinated by the tunnel,” Kroik continues. “It got me thinking about how one’s imagination is always active when you’re a kid. I started wondering, what can she possibly see? Beautiful flowers? I tried to see the tunnel through her eyes.”

JENNY KROIK FEATURED IN THE WASHINGTON POST

JKroik_WashPost.jpg
Before the 2016 election, talking about politics in social situations was considered rude or uncool. But in the last year, I feel that people started to really see the connection between politics and their own lives, and political conversations became more commonplace.
— Jenny Kroik

Jenny Kroik for the Washington Post's feature, 'Moving forward: Female artists create works that reflect on what the Women’s March has changed in the past year.'

JENNY KROIK : THE NEW YORKER COVER

The New Yorker Cover.jpg
I like to loiter around the city looking for interesting things. I have tried to do a painting a day since I moved here from Oregon, a year and a half ago. Bookstores are really good places for inspiration–you see people interacting with the books they have an affinity for, you see how people consume the culture. Sometimes someone will be dressed in a similar way to things he or she is looking at. I love these sort of poetic fun moments.”
— Jenny Kroik

Congratulations to our artist Jenny Kroik for this week's The New Yorker cover!
