I’m pleased to announce an exciting new project I’ve been working on for the past year. It’s an interactive storybook app called Clementine Wants to Know… available now for iPad and iPhone (Android any day now). I’ve been working with the people at Puddle Tap and we plan to do a series of Clementine apps. For the first one we tackle the Big Question: Where do babies come from? (Warning: this tells the whole story of conception in medical detail with words and pictures. If you’re not sure where babies come from you’d better look through the app before showing it to your child!) Content was developed with sex education specialist Meg Hickling, RN.
This scene is the frantic drive to the hospital. I illustrated the elements on different layers so everything can whiz by just like the chase scenes in old Hanna-Barbera cartoons. It’s been a blast to see the people at Puddle Tap animate my artwork, some of the best animation I’ve seen done specifically for an app.
