There's a new little section on The New Yorker Magazine website, appropriate to these technological times.
Every week, Jorge Colombo, a New York illustrator, posts short videos made on his iphone. You can watch Colombo create images using an application that simulates fingerpainting. The drawings are usually scenes from New York.
In fact, the June 1st cover of the New Yorker was the first to be created on an iphone for that magazine. The cover shows a street view of Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum in Times Square.
Other Colombo iPod creations show wedding photographs taken at the foot of the Manhattan Bridge, the interior of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and views from New York City streets.
