Artist + iPhone App + 1 hour = New Yorker cover

Posted by andreaitis on May 25, 2009

Is this a gimmick, or a turning point?  With the iPhone and the Kindle, this could be the redefining moment for  graphic artists and cover art.  Will there be an uprising or a welcome embrace?

Artist Jorge Colombo took about an hour to fingerpaint an intricate Times Square scene on his iPhone using Brushes, a $4.99 iPhone drawing app. Now, it’s the June 1st cover for The New Yorker.
