From Court Sketch to New Yorker Cover

Jane Rosenberg‘s courtroom sketch of former president Donald Trump scowling at his recent Manhattan arraignment has not only gone viral, but has gone to the cover of The New Yorker.

From Newsweek:

The Reuters Pictures Twitter page shared a courtroom sketch of Trump by Jane Rosenberg—that has now been viewed two million times—before social media users began sharing memes and jokes in response.

From The New Yorker:

Truth is stranger than fiction: for the first time in its long history, The New Yorker is publishing a courtroom sketch on the cover.

Jane Rosenberg, the artist behind the cover for the April 17, 2023, issue, was one of three approved sketch artists in the courtroom on the fifteenth floor of the Manhattan Criminal Courthouse, on April 4, 2023, when the former President Donald Trump was arraigned on thirty-four felony charges of falsifying business records.
