Artist Jorge Colombo has impressed many with his drawings created on his iPhone (by way of the Brushes application. Now, his drawing of a 42nd Street hot dog stand is this week's New Yorker cover. Colombo tells the New Yorker he "painted" the cover while standing outside Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum for an hour.

As for his iPhone, “I got a phone in the beginning of February, and I immediately got the program so I could entertain myself." Colombo adds, "Before, unless I had a flashlight or a miner’s hat, I could not draw in the dark.” Colombo also spoke to the NY Times, "[The iPhone] 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." New Yorker art director Francoise Mouly was approving, "All too often the technology is directed in only one direction, which is to make things more tight, and this, what he did very well, is use this technology for something that is free flowing, and I think that’s what makes it so poetic and magical."

Here's a video of how the New Yorker cover illustration came together:

The New Yorker's website will feature one of Colombo's iPhone drawings each week. His work is also available at 20x200.
