The iPhone is so handy that artists can now leave their brushes and easel at home. The latest cover of the New Yorker was made entirely using the "Brushes" iPhone application over the course of an hour. The artist, Jorge Colombo, set up shop on 42nd Street and painted the cover portraying people hanging around a hot dog stand in the evening. The most convenient aspect of using the iPhone? No interruptions. An artist trying to paint the old fashioned way will be pestered by onlookers, not so when using an iPhone. “It gives him an anonymity in the big city that an artist with the easel wouldn’t have,” the art editor of the New Yorker said.
