Artist Jorge Colombo has managed to find a hip new use for the iPhone that Apple has yet to exploit for an App Store ad.
In an amazing bit of finger-eye coordination, he created the current cover of the New Yorker with his iPhone and a $4.99 app called Brushes - and the companion Brushes Viewer app that allows for recording the process and outputting the work in large scale.
While art in the digital space continues to evolve in astonishing and impressive ways, this might be the most impressive electronic finger painting yet.
It "made it easy for me to sketch without having to carry all my pens and brushes and notepads with me, and I like the fact that I am drawing with a set of tools that anybody can have easily in their pocket," Colombo said.
And if you like Colombo's work, the New Yorker promises a new drawing each week on the Web site.
Here's a look in video form of the magazine cover in progress:
And you can find a bunch more of Colombo's iPhone work here in massively large proportions.
