At Culture Monster, we’ve always been pretty big fans of the eye-catching artwork on the cover of New Yorker. So when we caught a glimpse of this week’s magazine, we were intrigued by the soft, colorful image gracing the front.

Turns out the artwork was created by Jorge Colombo, using an iPhone application called Brushes.


“I got a phone in the beginning of February, and I immediately got the program so I could entertain myself,” Colombo said on the New Yorker website. It took him about an hour to create the scene outside Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Times Square.

We’d tell you more about it, but we’re too busy painting with our new iPhone app. But you can read about Colombo and his work here.
