The cover of the new issue of prestigious American weekly The New Yorker has been created by an Israeli artist, Tomer Hanuka.

 

 

The drawing, "Perfect Storm," is Hanuka's first cover for the magazine. He says he first thought of it several years ago after reading a short story by Sam Shepardthat ran in The New Yorker, "Indianapolis (Highway 74)," in which a middle-aged man runs across a former lover in a hotel lobby during a snow storm.
