Fearless... my journey into digital art
For several years I've played around with a little digital art here and there, but never really dove into it. I'm a very hands on person, I love touching the artwork, getting paint on my hands, and using pencils and bushes. But awhile back I was contacted to see about coming up with a digital ibook for the iPad.
I decided to do it digitally so it would be easier to manipulate and animate. After a couple weeks, I really got into it and feel like I'm finding my way to a great style. The book I'm working on is called "Philippe's Wish" and should be out later this year through "ibookkids". It is about Philippe, a dapper little dog who sets out into the night sky to catch a star and make a wish on it. A very fearless little character. Above is a sample of one of the pages.
So thanks for checking it out, and if you have an iPad, watch for the book and I'll put up another post when it comes out!
