The much anticipated Apple iPAD was revealed by CEO Steve Jobs during an Apple Event on Wednesday in San Francisco. Jobs says “In order to really create a new category of devices, those devices are going to have to be far better at doing some key tasks,” “We think we’ve got the goods. We think we’ve done it.”

Last week Frog Design dug into their archives and showcased an early prototype of the Apple Tablet named “Bashful”. Head over to Design Mind for the full story.

Phone Drawing

This weeks cover for the New Yorker was developed by artist Jorge Colombo. What separates this cover from previous ones is that his medium was an iPhone apps. called ‘Brushes’. The artist explains his process below:

The drawing was created by Colombo in just an hour, while he stood outside the Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Times Square. “I got a phone in the beginning of February and I immediately got the programme so I could entertain myself,” says the artist on the New Yorker website, where a film of his process can also be viewed. “Before, unless I had a flashlight or a miner’s hat, I could not draw in the dark.” Colombo also stated that drawing on the phone had the advantage of allowing him to draw without being noticed, although he does mention one drawback of phone painting: that when the sun is up, it is hard to see, “because of the glare on the phone”.

To see additional work by the artist you know the drill.
