Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

Reading Venice Chronicles

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

Click on the link below to see a little iphone video of me flicking through Venice Chronicles on the ipad. Forgive me the low quality video but I think it gives you an overall idea of it works.

Venice Chronicles on your ipad

Monday, February 21st, 2011

I have to tell you about Whamix! It’s a brand new ipad comicbook reader that Apurvah Sha (One of the uberminds here at Pixar) has developed in the last few months. When I saw a test on a few pages of The Venice Chronicles I was immediately sold. It really simulates the eye movement on [...]

Here’s the little silly Tshirt I just got printed for ComicCon. Yoga! You might remember this piece for the SketchTravel project, I turned it into this strange shirt.
