iPhone hearts New York
Some people think the iPhone is a mobile phone. It’s not.
It’s a tiny computer. And proof, of course, is the fact that there are now over 35,000 applications on sale (or free) in the App Store.
So it should come as no surprise that digital art created on an iPhone has hit the big time. No less venerable a showcase than The New Yorker will feature a cover painting created entirely on an iPhone. using an app called Brushes. (And yes, of course I downloaded it!)
Watch Jorge Colombo’s illustration come to life in the video below. Or read the whole article.
I just have to add to this post. The coolest thing about Brushes happens when you export a painting to the Brushes Viewer application on your computer. This happens over WiFi, using your normal web browser to access the file.
The painting you did is then no longer a little iPhone image. The application turns it into a shockingly high resolution version of itself by re-painting it rather than up-rezzing it. No giant mushy pixels. The detail is astonishing. Amazing fun!
