New Yorker Cover Painted Entirely on iPhone

The June cover of the New Yorker was painted entirely on the iPhone in only an hour by artist Jorge Colombo.

The Times Square scene was created as Colombo stood for an hour outside Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum using the $4.99 Brushes application from the App Store.

"I got a phone in the beginning of February, and I immediately got the program so I could entertain myself," says Colombo, who first published his drawings in The New Yorker in 1994. Colombo has been drawing since he was seven, but he discovered an advantage of digital drawing on a nighttime drive to Vermont. "Before, unless I had a flashlight or a miner's hat, I could not draw in the dark." (When the sun is up, it's a bit harder, "because of the glare on the phone," he says.) It also allows him to draw without being noticed; most pedestrians assume he's checking his e-mail.

Colombo will have a new iPhone drawing published each week on newyorker.com
