KatrinaRita Gras

Artist William Joyce was commissioned by The New Yorker magazine to produce a cover illustration that would coincide with the sixth-month anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and New Orleans’ first Mardi Gras after the storm. Editors eventually bumped his “KatrinaRita Gras” in favor of a more sensational story when Vice President Dick Cheney shot his hunting partner in the face in February 2006.
