Illustrators Around The World Are Creating Amazing “New Yorker”–Style Cover Art For Tokyo

    A gorgeous tribute to those iconic illustrated covers.

    If you love seeing The New Yorker’s super artsy covers each week, you’ll definitely want to check out The Tokyoiter.

    Even though The Tokyoiter isn’t an actual magazine, the collection of cover art has since grown to include drawings and cartoons from illustrators around the world.

    Cofounders Andrew Joyce, an illustrator, and David Robert, an art director, told BuzzFeed News that they began living in Tokyo about five years ago and launched The Tokyoiter after meeting other illustrators visiting the city.

    Inspired by The New Yorker’s weekly covers, which have become something of a collectible among its devoted readers, Joyce and Robert wanted to use the medium as a way to celebrate the many sides of their new home city.

    They're received positive feedback from other artists, Tokyo residents, and tourists.

    You can find all of The Tokyoiter covers online here — and let us know which one is your fave!
