This week, the New Yorker’s cover “June Brides” is a first for the famous publication. Gayle Kabaker submitted this artwork to the contest on Blown Covers blog. On the blog, New Yorker’s art editors, Françoise Mouly and Nadja Spiegelman announce themes online on Monday and accept art from everybody. Then, by Friday, they judge the different pieces of art and those paintings or drawings are considered for the cover of the New Yorker. The theme for this previous week was weddings and Gayle Kabaker was the first person from the blog to have his work presented on the cover of the New Yorker. “It’s a big deal, getting on the cover. We’ve been getting the magazine forever—it comes in and goes straight on the kitchen table. We talk about the cover with my son, who’s seventeen, and my daughter, who’s twenty-three. ‘What do you think it means?’ It’s a conversation. And we all read it, dog-ear it, and leave it on the table for the next person to pick up,” says Kabaker. [SheWired]
