Under the Covers
Join us for a behind-the-scenes look at creating covers for The New Yorker by following your bliss. Graphic designer/art director Mark Ulriksen quit his day job at age 37 to embark on a freelance career as a self-employed illustrator, learned how to paint, drew what he loved (dogs, baseball, music, movies, current events, relationships) and parlayed that into a continuing presence inside and on the cover of The New Yorker for the past 25 years.
Among his many awards, Mark just received a Society of Illustrators’ 2019 Gold Medal for the cover above.
