New Yorker Halloween Cover by Ivan Brunetti

I had Halloween dinner earlier tonight with my boyfriends aunt and uncle and I spotted the new issue of The New Yorker with this sweet Ivan Brunetti illustration gracing it’s cover. If you look at this cover long enough you realize that you’re looking at a huge party with it’s weary hosts standing in the bottom right corner. The guests are a huge mix of people, from a gaggle of Gagas at the top left, Popeye and Olive Oil in the top right, Shakespeare raiding the beers in the fridge, the Bride of Frankenstein, Wolfman and Dracula giving the stink-eye to Freddy Krueger and even Robert De Niros as The Godfather, Jake La Motta from Raging Bull, Travis Bickle and Rupert Pupkin from The King of Comedy all stare each other down. One of the best Halloween covers I’ve ever seen.
