CoverStory-Viva-Love-879x1200-1466174452The latest cover of The New Yorker honors the Orlando shooting victims with a beautiful image by Frank Viva. This is a new take on an illustration Viva originally created to celebrate the Supreme Court legalizing gay marriage.

The first version featured two men embracing. In the wake of the Orlando tragedy, Viva altered the image; showing there is power in simplicity.

“It’s a celebration of love,” Viva explained. “It’s just that simple.”
