with anything, actually.

Looking for more evidence that the iPad Pro can be used to
create stunning artwork? The cover of the latest issue of
The New Yorker might be just the proof
you’re searching for.

Created by
the magazine’s long-time art editor Jorge Colombo, it
depicts kids playing basketball near to his home in
Brooklyn. “This was a risky drawing to make,” he said. “I kept
worrying that the ball would hit me or the iPad.” Not that he
let that stop him from creating a stunning image!

“It’s one
of my favorite places to hang out,” Jorge Colombo said. “I live
down the street, in Brooklyn Heights, so I go there all the
time, either to take the East River Ferry or just to relax by
the water. It is a magnet—people come from all of Brooklyn’s
many neighborhoods just to take a selfie by the waterfront or
picnic by the water.”

This isn’t
the first time Colombo has created art using an Apple
device for the New Yorker.
Earlier this year
, Colombo employed his trusty
12.9-inch iPad Pro, Apple Pencil and the app Procreate to
create a memorable image of the Staten Island ferry.

His first
iOS creation, meanwhile, traces all
the way back to 2009
when he used his iPhone and the app
Brushes to paint a late-night scene in Manhattan.

Impressive stuff!
