New Yorker Cover Goes Viral Because It's 'So Damn Relatable' For 2020

“The New Yorker’s new front page has gone viral because of the way many people think it perfectly sums up 2020 and the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Artist Adrian Tomine’s illustration for the magazine’s Dec. 7 issue ― titled “Love Life” ― shows a woman video chatting, surrounded by the artifacts of “daily pandemic life.” Inside this week’s issue of The New Yorker:— The New Yorker (@NewYorker) November 30, 2020 “I have a feeling that, years from now, I might look back at this cover and have a kind of P.T.S.D. reaction to something as insignificant as a bottle of hand sanitizer,” explained Tomine. Twitter users hailed the image’s relatability: I don’t know why @NewYorker wouldn’t tag me in this drawing they did of me trying to survive the end of my 20s during a pandemic.— Haleigh Hoffman (@HaleighHoffman) November 30, 2020 But it’s so damn relatable— Haleigh Hoffman (@HaleighHoffman) November 30, 2020 I feel seen @NewYorker— erika meitner (@rikam99) November 30, 2020 The @NewYorker is capturing the zeitgeist masterfully – once again.
