Artist Paints Cover for New Yorker Magazine -- on iPhone!

The New Yorker (via Engadget Mobile) has an amazing cover for their June issue that was painted... on an iPhone!

Jorge Colombo used the app, Brushes ($4.99 - iTunes link) to create the work. He told the New York Times that the iPhone:

β€œmade it easy for me to sketch without having to carry all my pens and brushes and notepads with me, and I like the fact that I am drawing with a set of tools that anybody can have easily in their pocket,” he said. There is one other advantage of the phone, too: no one notices he is drawing. Mr. Colombo said he stood on 42nd Street for about an hour with no interruptions.

The editors liked the more organic, dream-like quality of the iPhone image, not as sharp or technical as typical electronic renderings.

We like it too. Video after the break!
