If we have no peace,
it is because we have forgotten
that we belong to each other.
Jacquie Lawson, an artist in the United Kingdom, offers the most charming eCards and eNotes that I’ve encountered. Her drawings are delightful. The image above is a screen shot of one of the Advent calendars she offers. She also offers a version that can be viewed on an iPad. Every day, a new number is highlighted. When it is selected, a charming animation plays along with a seasonal tune. I am enchanted, especially when I look at it at night, and the sky is darkened with the lights sparkling.
My friend, Jane Roberts, sent this to me as a gift and I’ve shared it with other folks. My biggest curiosity is about the technology behind these fascinating presentations. How does she do that?
September 2009 post they talk about the original painting starting the process and then animation being added. I am assuming since the cards require flash to play, they use Adobe products to add the animation (note, confirmed at http://www.jacquielawson.com/aboutus.asp, under Sally Lisney’s bio). Interesting website and beautiful animations.
