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 : THE NEW YORKER COVER

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.”
