Talented illustrator Barry Blitt says of his cover for the current The New Yorker:
“The small figure depicted here is not specific. He could be any one of the parade of names that gets longer every day—from Harvey Weinstein to Roy Moore, Al Franken, Louis C.K., Bill O’Reilly and Roger Ailes, Bill Cosby, Kevin Spacey, and even the current occupant of the White House. He could be anybody, actually.”
Blitt is one of the great political cartoonists of all time. His gorgeous, hilarious, and provocative cartoons have been lampooning American politics and culture for decades. His iconic The New Yorker covers are defining images for our times, earning him adoration from critics and fans and piles of hate mail from everyone else.
His illustrations for have also been featured in The NY Times and Vanity Fair, and other publications.
Blitt titled this cover: Nowhere To Hide.
