News from Illustrator Ian David Marsden

 

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.

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.

(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


Well that about wraps up this little news update. Thank you for your interest.

Original Ian David Marsden cartoon art gallery is now open.

Welcome to the Ian Marsden original art gallery and on-line shop!

VISIT THE SHOP HERE!

http://www.marsdenillustration.com/shop/

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.
