I just experienced my first gallery exhibition for children's book illustration as a member of the Children's Book Illustrators Grp.(CBIG). The show's theme was Mother Goose and I chose Humpty-Dumpty because of the images I saw in my mind. The challenge inspired me to create what you see here.
The show was curated so well at the Flinn Gallery, which was on the 2nd floor of the Greenwich Library in Greenwich Connecticut. It is a lovely space run by the Friends of Greenwich Library, a wonderful group of women. They took such loving care and were all so complimentary to our work. I felt very proud to have participated in such a well organized, professional exhibition with so many inspiring, talented artists.
If you have the time, enjoy a visit to the Flinn Gallery to see the exhibition before the show closes January 16, 2013.

Interactive Puzzle - from .swf to .html

Creating interactive puzzles for children has always been a favorite of mine. Presently, I am consumed with the goal of converting this game from an Flash .swf to an IOS mobile device-able app with a new, fun tool I discovered called Adobe Edge Animate. This genius software assists in creating animation and interactive content for the web, but most importantly, for mobile devices using HTML5, CSS3 and javascript.  This is Adobe's answer to the Flash software dilemna and great it is, as well as fun.

Mind you, I have found that my lack of knowledge in javascript does hold me back from really getting under the hood and cranking out what I feel is compelling and dynamic interactivity. But I am determined. Know any great javascripters out there? Let me know, please. The more javascript you know the easier it is to jump in and go to town and I learn more and more each day.
