Nouvelles de Ian Marsden Illustrateur

 


Les quelques mois depuis ma dernière mise à  jour ont été très actives et intéressantes.Je l’ai eu le grand plaisir d’accueillir plusieurs nouveaux clients et de collaborer, déssiner et généralement être créatif sur des nombreux nouveaux projets amusants.

Voici quelques “highlights” de certains de mes récents productions.

EDITEURSJe souhaite bienvenu Richmond Publishing / Santillana comme nouveaux clients et j’ai eu la merveilleuse occasion de créer une séie d’illustrations pour des livres de matériel pédagogique.

CLIQUEZ ICI pour mon book complet.

DESIGN


Je suis très heureux de vous annoncer que je l’ai ajouté un 6ème objet portant la signature Marsden à la Collection Design pour le célèbre fabricant allemand de verrerie RITZENHOFF

Ma dernière création est une verre de bière avec un caractère Viking qui semble d’ètre tout à  fait prèt pour des nouvelles aventures (ou au moins pour une autre pinte rafraîchissante).

PUBLICITÉ

Un autre nouveau client que j’ai eu le plaisir d’accueillir est digades.

On m’a confié la tâche de créer une série d’illustrations pour des annonces de publicité imprimées / affiches montrant l’efficacité et la facilité d’utilisation de leur nouvelle application pour smartphone “dfreeeze”, avec lequel vous pouvez contrôler à distance votre chauffage de voiture à partir de votre téléphone ou tablette.

https://www.dfreeeze.de/winter

Je produisais aussi 2 vidéos Whiteboard pour le même client.

Il s’agit d’une nouvelle technologie visuelle qui s’appelle aussi: “Whiteboard Cartoon Animation” ou “Scribing” ou “Explainer Video“. Un moyen de video d’explication à la fois explicite et original.

Les 2 videos Whiteboard en anglais et en allemand pour le produit dfreeze utilisent les mêmes personnages et illustrations à maintenir de façon transparente le même langage visuel. (voir aussi ci-dessous)


LES VIDÉO “WHITEBOARD” Des vidés produites pour digades et leur application dfreeeze expliquent l’appli dfreeeze et comment il fonctionne d’une manière ludique et élégant.

WEB ET INTERACTIVE


Je me suis beaucoup amusé avec cette rècente mission pour GMX.net, pour qui je fus invité à concevoir une série de cartes de voeux de GIF animés pour diffèrentes occasions comme l’Halloween, Noël et le Nouvel An.https://navigator.gmx.net/
(un compte utilisateur GMX est requis pour accèder aux cartes)

PROJETS PERSONNELSJ’ai finalement eu un peu de temps pour travailler suer les propres projets a moi meme et de créer et télécharger quelques nouveaux videos tutoriels sur pour mon canal YouTube personnelle.

https://www.youtube.com/user/idmars10

Dans cette dernière série de vidéos je fais une demonstration comment je dessine avec le logiciel Adobe Illustrator sur mon écran à stylet Wacom Cintiq, qui est devenu un outil précieux pour moi.

Je démontre comment je crée des dessins en lignes vectorisés pour divers personnages de l’Halloween tels que Jack-O-Lantern, une Sorcière / Vampire Lady et un Loup-Garou.

Dans un autre vidéo je colore une illustration humoristique de style bande dessinée du père Noel – aussi un dessin en vectoriel.

Je parle en anglais malheureusement dans ces court métrages, mais c’est peut ètre quand meme intéressant pour ceux qui savent deja un peu comment fonctionne le logiciel Adobe Illustrator.


Pour venir à la fin de cette petite mise à jour, je me remercie beaucoup de votre intèret.Je suis un illustrateur indépendant, dessinateur et designer et je suis disponible pour de nouveaux projets.

News and Updates from Illustrator Ian Marsden


The few months since my last update have been highly active and interesting.

I have had the pleasure of welcoming several new clients and collaborating, drawing and generally being creative on many fun new projects.

Here are a few brief highlights of what I have been up to.

PUBLISHING

I welcomed Richmond Publishing / Santillana as new clients and had the wonderful opportunity of creating a series of illustrations for educational materials.

CLICK HERE for my full portfolio.

DESIGN & LICENSING

I am very pleased to announce that I have added a 6th object bearing the Marsden signature to the Design Collection for renowned German glasswork manufacturer  RITZENHOFF 

My latest creation is a 50 cl Beer Glass featuring a little Viking Character who appears to be quite ready for action (or at least ready for another refreshing pint).

ADVERTISING

Another new client I had the pleasure of welcoming is digades.

I was entrusted with the task of creating a series of illustrations for print ads and posters showing the efficiency and ease of use of their new dfreeeze app, with which you can remote control your car heater from your smart phone.

https://www.dfreeeze.de/winter

I also produced 2 Whiteboard Scribing videos in English and in German for the dfreeze product using the same characters and illustrations. (see below)


WHITEBOARD VIDEOS

WEB AND INTERACTIVE

I had a lot of fun with this recent assignment for GMX.net, for which I was invited to design a series of animated GIF Greeting cards for various occasions such as Halloween, Christmas and the New Year.

https://navigator.gmx.net/
(a GMX account is required to access the cards)

PERSONAL PROJECTS

Last but not least I was able to complete some personal projects and I created and uploaded some new tutorial videos for my own personal YouTube channel.

https://www.youtube.com/user/idmars10

In this latest series of videos I show how I draw on my Wacom Cintiq pen display, which has become an invaluable tool for me, in Adobe Illustrator software.

I demonstrate how I create vector line art for various Halloween characters such as a Jack-O-Lantern, a Witch/Vampire Lady and a Werewolf. In a separate video I also show how I color a cartoon illustration of Santa Claus

Halloween Monster Drawing Tutorial Videos Wacom Cintiq and Adobe Illustrator

Halloween Monster Drawing Tutorial Videos in Adobe Illustrator

Just in time for Halloween: A brand new series of “How To Draw” videos where I show how I create a basic rough sketch in Autodesk SketchBook  Pro software.
>LINK to software

This is what the rough sketch looked like when it was completed:
sketchvideo-title1920

and then I placed this rough sketch on a template layer inside my Adobe Illustrator document and drew and inked the line art for the three characters, the Jack-O-Lantern pumpkin, the witch/vampire lady and the werewolf.
Finally I also colored the artwork in illustrator using flats and shading and also several gradients.

The final artwork looks like this and is 100% vector art so it has no pixels and can be scaled to any size losslessly.

A new section of my website has just opened up. It’s a little shop where collectors and fans of original cartoon art can purchase select pieces from my own personal archives and collections.

Many of them have been published and some are over 20 years old, so it’s a bit of a walk down memory lane and there is a lot of fun stuff to see.

These originals look great framed in private homes, offices or even waiting rooms or other areas where walls can use some serious heightening of the “interesting factor”.
They also make WONDERFUL GIFT IDEAS. (Hint, hint.)

I would be delighted to add a personal dedication or custom sentence to the bottom of any piece.
Please let me know via e-mail when you purchase a drawing.

Also I will be adding more pieces, so keep checking back from time to time.

Article Midi Libre sur Illustrateur, Designer et Graphiste Ian Marsden
Vacquières : un artiste hors du commun
Midi Libre 26/07/2014

Ian Marsden exprime sa passion dans son atelier à Vacquières


Il y exerce avec un talent reconnu depuis de longues années, le métier de graphiste, illustrateur, designer.
Né à New York, Ian Marsden révèle très jeune une aptitude pour le dessin et une imagination débordante. Ces dispositions artistiques sont très appréciées par les publicitaires et les designer. Il participe à des stages et il est bien vite remarqué pour sa plume et sa créativité originale, drôle. Celle-ci s’adresse aussi bien aux touts jeunes, qu’aux ados ou aux adultes avertis. Il obtient un diplôme en étude dessin animé (matière où il excelle) à la prestigieuse académie de Santa Monica collège.

A 16 ans, Ian vend ses premiers dessins à un journal satirique Suisse. Il devient le plus jeune artiste « Nébi », et ses publications dans divers magazines lui font très rapidement une solide notoriété. Doué et talentueux, pour lui, la vraie magie derrière chaque création, c’est sa capacité à écouter attentivement le client et analyser son désir, qu’il reproduit fidèlement. Il conçoit des personnages style caricatures et des mascottes pour les événements majeurs tel que la mascotte officielle du championnat du monde de ski à Saint-Moritz, des panneaux publicitaires, etc.

En 1999 il est le premier artiste à dessiner pour google les petites histoires qui se déroulent autour du logo ; et qui s’appellent aujourd’hui google doodles.
Il est également un designer attitré de la marque Ritzenhoff qui réalise des objets utilitaires ou décoratifs en verre et en porcelaine.

Notre illustrateur met en image les idées qui lui viennent à l’esprit et leur donne couleur, forme et mouvement.
Il réalise des dessins pour des livres très variés, tel que la couverture de l’album de Toya Jackson et bien d’autres.

Vous pouvez consulter son site : marsdenillustration.com ou le contacter au 06 42 49 82 11.
