painting on the iPhone

In honor of the mindblowingly cool move The New Yorker made this week by running one of Jorge Colombo’s awesome iPhone paintings on this week’s cover, I decided to delve back into the Brushes app, which Jorge used to paint his cover illustration.
One of the coolest features of Brushes is the ability to download “.brushes” files from your iPhone via wifi and load them into the companion Brushes viewer program on the Mac. The .brushes file isn’t just a flat image, it’s a data ‘recording’ of all the strokes you made AND it’s resolution independent, so you can render the image out at up to 6x the iphone’s 480×320 resolution. And you can render out movies of your painting coming to life.
Jorge now has a regular weekly spot on The New Yorker’s website to post his Brushes movies. Pretty damn cool…
So here’s a movie of a painting I did of some bearded dude (sorta 300 Leonidas I suppose)..Enjoy!

Silhouette lab and custom brushes

While working on a recent illustration I started using the lasso tool in Photoshop to draw some quick and spontaneous character silhouettes, which I really enjoyed. I was playing around some more with that this week in the lab…Also playing with the custom brushes a bit.
After a chat with P.A. this week about custom brushes (typical graphics nerds that we are), and in the spirit of openness and sharing that has energized the online illustration community, I am giving away the farm and offering up my most frequently used custom brushes for anyone to download…these were exported from CS3, so hopefully you can use ’em…
