An Overview of the story-so-far…
A boy investigates the different discoveries that man has found… And ends up him asking his father one of the most important questions of his young life.
The storyline is 65% finished.

Thinking about its content, the age range is towards something higher that of a three year old. I was inspired by the children's books I saw in France, that held a deep meaning or narrative considering their age.

This book will be very experimental, considering its for research purposes into the capabilities of HTML-EPUB Scripts.
Im hoping to make my illustrations as animated sequences using gifs and video clips; containing some elements of interactivity {not too much} and possible camera/tilt controls.
Heres a cool example here;
Works on iPad, so its entirely possible.


First colour drawing i did for the book. Transition might go inside the boys face, to different body parts;

The possibility of swinging lightbulbs using tilt sensors within the iPad would be a nice touch. Enabling them with scripts is the hard part.

Below is a video test I compiled recently. Having a Colourful Paper style with painted elements is what I'm trying to achieve for style for its simplistic appeal to the children's story genre.
