Ink Robin is a storybook app company that I started in 2011 with two other people. I oversee the entire production and act as creative director for each project. I co-write and create the content with my writing/business partner and then storyboard all the illustrations and interactions for the artist we hire to draw the book. I art direct the illustrators and the developers as well as putting together all of the audio sound effects, music and narration. So far we've made 12 original, highly interactive books for mobile devices. (and one print book with Egmont in the UK.) We've also licensed 8 of the books to Manuvo in Columbia where they have been translated into Spanish and put online for libraries in Columbia, Mexico and Peru with plans to expand to all of Latin America.
tiny truths: Having released nine apps into the sea of general kid's content available for mobile devices, we decided to change our strategy and create a new series that was a little more niche. Our latest three apps are part of an ongoing faith based series intended for a huge and surprisingly under served market. Our goal was to take the sensibility and humour of our other books and combine it with a message that matters to millions of parents.
As well as my usual production responsibilities I also illustrated these books.
