This is how the last New Yorker cover was made using an iPad Pro

A few days ago, we were excited about the changes iOS 11 can bring exclusively to the iPad, and make it a better choice when it comes to replacing a computer. However, and in the expectation that this possibility will materialize or not, there are many examples that as Apple’s tablet is known it is very useful for the most unexpected activities; the cover illustration for this week’s issue of New Yorker was created by an artist using an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, and as the magazine did in January, this time he also shared a video, showing how the illustration was created.

The video of this work that generated so much empathy among the magazine’s followers and, of course, the iPad, is available on the New Yorker website

In both cases it has been the same artist, the architect of the result that this media publishes today; it is Jorge Colombo, who has considerable experience with iDevices to create his art. He first started doing it on an iPhone eight years ago, in 2009 – with only his finger – and that illustration was the cover of New Yorker at the time.

Colombo says he now works almost exclusively on iPhone or iPad , using a mix of watercolor and inkjet applications.

Another fan, of this work was the same Tim Cook, who published on Twitter a quote from Colombo in which he said he was surprised by the realism of the work.
