Watch Bob Staake Creating A Cover Of ‘The New Yorker’: The amazing thing is that Staake still uses Adobe Photoshop 3.0 under System 7. I heard it through the grapevine, where the grapevine is Mark Frauenfelder at Boing Boing. (Small peeve: Mr Frauenfelder writes Mac OS 7, while it should be written System 7 — the label “Mac OS” was used from version 7.6 on.)
Here’s another video of Staake at work. It’s wonderful how he manages to create beautiful illustrations starting from simple forms, and achieving the final results by addition and subtraction.

UPDATE: He actually uses Mac OS 9 in the Classic Environment under Mac OS X, not System 7, as he himself clarified over Twitter.
