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).

http://marsdenillustration.com/portfolio/ritzenhoff/


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.

Vidéo anglais: http://youtu.be/9rn4cujsVNs

Vidéo allemand: http://youtu.be/jIWmPaZ5n0A

En savoir plus sur des vidéos Whiteboard, bien sur aussi en FRANCAIS
envoyez moi SVP un mail: ian@marsdenillustration.com
ou appelez moi (Ian Marsden) en direct au: 06 42 49 82 11


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.

Mon BOOK et une courte biographie, liste des clients et des témoignages peuvent ètre consultés sur ma page d’accueil ici: http://marsdenillustration.com/francais/

J’ai aussi une page d’artiste sur Facebook comme Ian David Marsden
Merci a vous pour “LIKER” ma page.

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

English and German Language Whiteboard Scribing Explainer Video produced for digades and their dfreeeze app explain the dfreeeze app and how it works in a playful yet elegant way.

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
