Latest New Yorker Cover Was Drawn With an Apple Pencil

Creativity today knows no bounds.

Take a look at the latest issue of The New Yorker. Per AppAdvice, the cover was created with the app Procreate. Artist Jorge Colombo channeled that popular and very cheap application ($2.99 for iPhone, $5.99 for iPad) using a 12.9-inch iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil.


With regards to the Staten Island ferry motif, Colombo shared with The New Yorker some fun additional info about how that transitory location figures into his efforts:

“After I procrastinate at my desk all day, I need to get out to get work done; so I go to a café, or to the library, or… to the Staten Island ferry.”

“The ferry is a great place to work: there’s the smell of the water, and late at night there aren’t many people. It’s like being in a grand hotel lobby. The trick, though, is to be one of the first when you disembark in Staten Island so you can get right back on the next departing boat. Otherwise, you’ll end up having to spend half an hour in Staten Island.”:
