Regarding Jorge Colombo's New Yorker iPhone app cover

OK, I'm not that excited to see an old media property recognizing that you can create art using other methods than paint on canvas, but there is an interesting irony in that it might just recognize the greatness of the medium that is eventually going to kill its print edition. If you check out the video below, you can see that Jorge Colombo can use the iPhone app to display that as he draws a picture, he is at the same time telling a story, and he is hoping to build suspense as he builds up layers of color and shape, something you can never do with old media... BTW he is part of the cool 20x200 art project, leveraging Internet and limited edition paintings.
