The New Yorker Cover Drawn With an iPhone

This Magazine Cover Was Drawn on An iPhone

The cover of this week's issue of The New Yorker was created using an iPhone. Artist John Colombo created the portrait of a west side Manhattan diner using Brushes, a $5 painting application. It's not the first cover he's created using the app; the first appeared last Spring. Since last June, Colombo has been posting his weekly Brushes illustrations on The New Yorker blog Finger Painting.

Brushes is one of the apps that's coming to the iPad, which hopefully means many more gorgeous, detailed illustrations are to come. To see a video of the cover's creation,

I'm just getting into drawing with a wacom tablet. Drawing on a tiny screen with a finger sounds like even more of a challenge. I can see how it could be great though. The other day I was just thinking that I don't use a notebook for notes and schedules anymore, but it's too bad my phone can't replace my little sketchbook yet. (I have an HTC, not an iphone.)
