    Dunno if this is quite the right department for this, but here goes:

    In a, not so distant, future, I'll be the proud owner of a hand drawn SmartCover (I just have to drive the 400 some kilometers first to get it), illustrated by my brother, the artist.

    Thing is - even though the pens used sure stick to the surface of the SC - I really don't want the drawing to neither crack (when folding the SC), nor wear off (by, inevitably and repeatedly, touching it), so my query is as follows: does any of you in here know of any kind of varnish that could be applied?

    I was thinking down the lines of some kind of thin layer of silica. In my mind that should generate a smooth, durable and elastic protection for this one-off drawing. Which I'm yet to lay my eyes on (but which, knowing my brothers work, I'm sure is truly a wonder to behold)... 

    So, what think you all?

    What do you mean, real? My bro has drawn onto my SmartCover and all I want is to protect this from wear 'n' tear. As good as possible. What's there to dis-believe?

    I think thats a great idea to have a custom smartcover with artwork from your favorite artist. I dont have any ideas for protecting it though. I have a red leather smartcover. I wonder if leather spray protectant would work.

    I got an smart cover before,while I have got rid of it...
    It made me confused on the unlock of the ipad..
    A new ozaki icoat ipad case with multi-functional stylus is much more cool and fashional..
