I really do think that well-done, original content (whether that's books, animated series, webisodes, podcasts, cartoons, you name it) is a rare thing in this world. Probably it's not so rare, because there will always be starving artists, poets and writers who create. But does the world see their work?Read More
Just dropping in while the house is asleep to post a link to our second YouTube video for the new app company, Fat and Appy. You can't start up smaller than us! Exhibit A is this homemade video. But you know what, I love it. We are doing this new app out of our (sappy language alert!) creative wellspring. I really need to go to sleep. I think I just wrote creative wellspring.
Okay, dear reader, I am signing off. Because I respect you too much to continue.
But before I go, a quick update on the art garage sale. We have sold two of the four paintings. Thank you, social media!
Also, this: The new app for iPad, Healthy Creatures, comes out later this month. We had thought it would be the 11th, but alas, we are still in line at Apple.
For those following carefully on the video, I am wearing a Lisa Leonard necklace called "Captured Heart" and it is turned around backwards. I love me some Lisa Leonard.
Finally, Jonathan's first Penguin USA children's book is ready for pre-order! It comes out Dec. 27, 2012, so if you like to get your New Year's 2013 shopping done early (ahem), here's a link.
We've been missing from the blog world lately because we're working feverishly on our latest project. It's a children's app for iPad called Healthy Creatures. The app is aimed at ages 3-8. Kids can make creatures out of fruits and vegetables, which makes playing with your food all the more fun! The launch of the new app is set for the end of July. Our new company is called Fat and Appy. We plan to make as many apps as we can (if the first one sells okay, of course!) and also create fun digital games that go with Jonathan's children's books. His first book he wrote and illustrated---Love Is in the Air--- is coming out Dec. 20, 2012 from Penguin USA.
Please head over to Facebook and like us. Your clicking "like" gives us so much confidence! We're also on Twitter @ fatandappyfun and on YouTube. We just posted our first video. Jonathan talks about app development and how he came up with the art direction.
By the way, I did this entire blog post on the iPad...first time I've done it that way!
Thanks so much for your support. We couldn't do any of this without you!
