iPhone Art Hits the Big Time

You may have heard that this month's New Yorker cover was created in sixty minutes by finger-painting on an iPhone. Curious, I googled artist Jorge Colombo, and found that he's managed to create other works of preternatural beauty using this same technique.

But the really weird - or perhaps actually not so weird - thing is that Colombo's non-iPhone art seems kind of flat and (to my eye) unexpressive.

Here's a gallery including both his (wonderful) iPhone art and his (less inspired) freehand drawings and photos.
