You might recognize Eli Noyes as the illustrator of Annie Fox’s whimsical Raymond and Sheila books. He is also the writer/illustrator of a new story app called Ruff’s Bone, available from Wanderful Interactive Storybooks.
Noyes is an animation and video veteran, having worked on projects for Sesame Street, HBO, Scholastic, Nickelodeon, MTV, Pixar, Disney and Oxygen Media. He is co-owner and co-founder of Alligator Planet, where he is busy creating short films, directing animation for documentaries, consulting on kid’s television and web projects, and, most recently designing postage stamps for the post office.
Help us welcome Eli to #storyappchat (and to Twitter!) this Sunday, May 5, at 9:00 p.m. Eastern/6:00 p.m. Pacific. We will have some promo codes for Ruff’s Bone to give away too! Just start including the #storyappchat hashtag to participate, and we’ll see you there.
UPDATE! Eli has provided some development sketches for both Ruff’s Bone and the Raymond and Sheila books! This is a fascinating look into character development and a very unique illustrator’s style.
