New Yorker covers via iPhone art

Artist Jorge Colombo now has four New Yorker covers under his belt, which may or may not be his preferred method of carrying his iPhone, which also happens to be the tool that he uses to create and paint the art for these covers. As the iPhone and the apps have built quite a active community, Colombo’s success with his iPhone (and specifically the Brushes app) created art has attracted a lot of attention online. The cover of the March 22 issue of the New Yorker depicts the artist’s interpretation of Empire Diner on the corner of 22nd Street and 10th Ave in Chelsea. For those of you who don’t live in New York City, here’s a Google Maps Street View of this location. Go here to see more as well as videos of these covers being digitally painted.
