This week in 'conjunction' with the approach of comet Ison we'll be launching 'The Day a Comet Came to Tea.' at The Royal Institute in London.
The story is about a rather ravenous comet that, well, comes to tea. Although anyone can enjoy this story the app is designed for ages 5 and under and was written by Guy Lachlan. I illustrated the story with many illustrations in as colourful and fun a way as I could imagine and I'm really delighted it is now available for iPad. A very different style than I've shown before.
The transition from paper to digital media has been managed perfectly and it's all thanks to Guy.
The app has music and some mild animation and is narrated by Graham Roos who does an excellent job that is somewhat reminiscent of the narration of the popular 1970's children's TV show Mr. Benn.
I'm absolutely delighted by how rich my illustrations appear and the way the images and text have been assembled.
The app is available on iTunes here.
