Sleeping Beauty - My first illustrations for an iPad & iPhone App

Last year I almost had the chance to work on some static, grayscale illustrations for Kindle book reader device but I guess it wasn't meant for me to do it at that point.

Luckily, the digital publishing market is developing fast and it becomes more and more interesting and accessible so I recently illustrated for my first Portugal based client an adapted version of Sleeping Beauty as part of their Bedtime Stories Collection. The 13 full color illustrations are now used in an App that can be downloaded on your iPhone or iPad from the iTunes store. (But, as far as I know, you cannot access the App directly trough the computer.)
This is the link for the iPhone.
And this one is for the iPad.
Although they are not animated, a certain degree of interactiveness exists as the child can turn the pages whenever he wants and he can also decide if the text is going to be read to him or overlayed on the pages in order to read it himself.
Looking forward to what's going to happen on the digital market in the next 6 months!


Anul trecut, aproape ca am avut ocazia sa lucrez la un proiect compus dintr-o serie de ilustratii statice si alb-negru pentru platforma Kindle dar, pana la urma, n-a fost sa se intample.
Din fericire, piata digitala a cartii se dezvolta asa de repede si de bine incat de curand am avut ocazia sa ilustrez, pentru primul meu client din Portugalia, o adaptare a Frumoasei din Padurea Adrmita, adaptare cu 13 ilustratii, de data aceasta, color. Povestea a fost transformata intr-o aplicatie pentru iPad si iPhone ce poate fi descarcata acum de pe iTunes, ca parte dintr-o colectie mai ampla de povesti.
(Insa, din cate stiu, nu poate fi accesata direct de pe calculator.)
Acesta-i link-ul pentru iPhone
si acesta e pentru iPad
Chiar daca nu-i o versiune animata, are interactivitate in sensul in care un copil poate rasfoi paginile dupa bunul plac si poate alege ca textul sa-i fie citit ori sa-l citeasca singur.
Sunt curioasa ce va intampla in urmatoarele 6 luni!
