Congratulations, Jorge!


'on the flip side' artist, Jorge Colombo was voted one of TIME Magazine's Top 10 Everything of 2009.

No homage here — this cover is a true original. New Yorker covers are often
topical, and they are known for their wit and keen cultural timing. But several
times a year, they just run covers that capture the New York–ness of America's
greatest city. This cover found a groundbreaking way to do that, featuring a
piece by illustrator-designer Jorge Colombo that was created on an iPhone
applicaton called Brushes. If it had been done just for novelty's sake, it would
be noteworthy but not significant. But this illustration meets the impeccable
standards of New Yorker covers — an accomplishment in any medium.
