Berkeley artist Eric Drooker’s New Yorker cover

Monday, October 10, 2011

imageThe Oct. 10 cover of The New Yorker is by Berkeley artist Eric Drooker, apropos of the Occupy Wall Street protests taking root across the country. He’s quoted in the staff notes as saying this about it:




“There’s this growing crowd of mostly young people down there right now, who camp out. Manhattan Island has become more and more an exclusive place for the super wealthy, or the super corporations—and a hostile place for people to live, not just for the working class, but even for the middle class. The city has become this monolithic cathedral to money.”
