This week's New Yorker cover features an iPad-drawn illustration by Jorge Colombo of basketball players on Pier 2 at Brooklyn Bridge Park against the Manhattan skyline.

“It’s one of my favorite places to hang out,” Jorge Colombo says, about the park he sketched, on an iPad, for the cover of this week’s issue. “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."

Check out this video showing the illustration process.
