Want proof you can get “real” work done on the iPad Pro? Look no further than the latest cover of The New Yorker.

Long-time art editor Jorge Colombo drew the latest cover using the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, Apple Pencil and the app Procreate. It’s not the first time art created on the iPad has been featured by the popular magazine, but it’s certainly the best looking one yet.

Even better, you can watch Colombo draw the cover.

“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,” explained Colombo in an interview.

“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.”

Apple launched the 12.9-inch iPad Pro in 2015. The jumbo tablet is aimed at professionals and creators looking for a more mobile work machine. A smaller (9.7-inch) iPad Pro followed last year, and Apple is expected to launch two new versions of this spring, with improved processors and other features.
