June 1st New Yorker cover painted with iPhone app

NY cover made with iPhone

The June 1st cover of the New Yorker was drawn with an iPhone, says the New York Times. Jorge Colombo, a recurring artist with the magazine, is specifically said to have used an app called Brushes. Using an iPhone offers anonymity, claims Colombo, because people cannot tell a drawing is in progress.

"I got a phone in the beginning of February, and I immediately got the program so I could entertain myself," says the artist. "Absolutely nobody can tell I am drawing."

Though working with the iPhone is said to be enjoyable, Colombo explains that he uses many means of creating artwork, such as pens and digital ink. The device offers other advantages like drawing in the dark, and through a particular feature of Brushes, recording an illustration session.

    GTA IV

    It looks as if Colombo has been playing Grand Theft Auto IV.

    OMG!

    The excitement! The thrills! Some guy drew something with an iPhone! Wow! Next thing we know, someone will be telling us how they passed gas with an iPhone! Or, get this, made a phone call!

    Seriously, is this news? Are we going to go back to the days of recanting all the TV shows and movies that display or use apple products?

    hmmm...

    I'm still wondering how the artist managed to get such detail, proportions, and resolution using his finger and a tiny screen... This is definitely a mind boggler.

    Jealous

    Oh t******* is just jealous because no WinMo user can ever do anything worthy enough like this. Nor has any WinMo device can even come close of this capability.

    He always makes me laugh with his posts. If it is such a non story why bother to comment? Oh we know why he has commented he is jealous, green with envy. He only comes here to try to put down Apple. Every opportunity is taken. What a child!
