Otto Steininger for The New Yorker

Otto had a brilliant idea while out navigating the wintery streets of NYC with his daughter in her stroller. Inspired by his not so unique predicament in what some may call the coldest place on Earth, he had a thought. Why not enlist all of those strollers to become mini-snow plows? He creatively illustrated his unique idea and it happily landed on the cover of The New Yorker! Kudos, Otto!

See more of Otto’s great ideas and whimsical illustrations.
