Artist Christoph Niemann Creates an Animated Cover for The New Yorker Depicting New York City Traffic on a Rainy Day


Artist Christoph Niemann created an animated version of his cover for The New Yorker magazine depicting New York City traffic on a rainy day for the October 6th, 2014 issue. The New Yorker also posted two of Niemann’s earlier sketches of rainy-day traffic.

When I arrived in New York for the first time, it was pouring. Maybe that’s why, to my mind, there’s no place on earth where being stuck in traffic on a rainy day is more beautiful.
