iPhone Art

Portugal-born New York-based artist Jorge Colombo has been making sketches on his iPhone with an application called Brushes weekly for the New Yorker since mid-September last year. The idea for the series came after his June 1, 2009 cover for the magazine.

“I got a phone in the beginning of February, and I immediately got the program so I could entertain myself,” Colombo told the New Yorker. The artist, whose first contribution to the magazine appeared in 1994, said that the Brushes app lets him "paint" in the dark, and also work discreetly in public.

The process is captured with another app, Brushes Viewer, which records the creation of the painting without including the parts that are erased when the artist makes an error or changes.

And for good measure, here's one of the elevated section of the F and G trains in Brooklyn over the Gowanus Canal. This view shows the entrance to the Smith-9th Street Station.
