Pauli & Friends by Discovery Books

The official product movie for the book series "Pauli & Friends" has been launched today by Discovery Books. I have been working a lot on the drawings and mechanics for this project lately and I couldn't be more proud of how it turned out! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! :-)

New Little Robot

I have been doodling this little fellow a lot recently. Here are two finished sketches... And it already feels like it has a life of its own!

Still Life Exercise

Drawing from life for a change. Painted with Procreate on the iPad after a quick drawing with a "real" pencil on paper.

Procreate Sketch + Wiggle Maker

Exploring a more "volumetric looking" drawing with procreate – and then combining it with the magic of Wiggle Maker (and a little bit of Photoshop). The result is a drawing that kinda looks like a sculpture... Love it!

Parallax Effect

Another little experiment with illustration and motion. This time making use of the great parallax.js plugin: It reacts to the orientation of a smart device or mouse cursor, offsetting layers depending on their depth within a scene... Just click here or on the image above to see it in action!

Procreate Sketches

Exploring stars with the amazing Procreate app – my absolute favorite tool for bringing sketches to life!

Aviator

The new redesigned website left some good images behind... This illustration is an old one but I am still very proud of it. Made just for the fun of it!

Cute for Christmas!
