If New York City is a state of mind, then Jorge Colombo captures the metropolis' thoughts like no other. Colombo's beautiful illustrations of New York City have graced the cover of "The New Yorker" three times, brilliantly depicting silhouetted roof top water towers, an illuminated Chrysler Building at night, and the ubiquitous hot dog stand. Amazingly, all of the images were created on an iPhone using the software program Brushes. This sophisticated volume presents one hundred of his best pieces in full colour. Every scene is unmistakably New York: familiar, grand, timeless, and laced with modern, cutting-edge technology. Immediately recognizable to native New Yorkers, but also perfect for anyone who admires the Big Apple, this is a monograph of an artist and a city.
