New Yorker cover drawn on iPhone
New York based Portuguese illustrator Jorge Colombo drew this week's cover of The New Yorker on his iPhone using an application called Brushes.
Judging by the size of the iPhone art Flickr group, there are many iSketchers out there. Stéphane Kardos and Xoan Baltar are two of my favorites. Kardos' sketches of Southern California sunsets actually inspired Colombo to explore iPhone sketching.
I asked Kardos about his iPhone sketches back in February on this interview for the Urban Sketchers blog. He said he likes the iPhone because "you can paint very quickly in the dark or capture a sunset as it's going down on location; the screen is backlit, it’s perfect."
For me, iPhone sketching makes getting one practically irresistible, but I'm going to stick to my plan of not buying things I don't really need. I'll let you know when I succumb to the temptation.
