“The New Yorker” cover finger-painted with iPhone App Brushes

May 29, 2009


Apple’s super-duper iPhone and an app called Brushes were used to create the June 1, 2009 cover for The New Yorker magazine by artist Jorge Colombo, who stood for an hour outside Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Times Square drawing it with his fingers.
