#120: Making Art on an iPad With Kotaro Fujita

Download MP3

JAG Cast | Episode 120

The PIC are back and the pod gets a new name! We welcome returning friend of the show, Kotaro Fujita to this inaugural JAG Cast to talk about creating digital art, especially with iPads. Learn about Kotaro's journey to become the amazing app designer/developer he is today. There is some fun reminiscing about app design trends, the original Sim City game, and the early days of the iPad. The discussion then goes in more depth on specific tools that can be used to create static art, animation, and even get something into the App Store. Don't miss the links this week! Finally and expectedly, a rousing A Game Called Something goes off the rails with tangents about identifying the nature of Grimace the purple McDonald's mascot as well as unironically using the phrase, "touching grass." We're getting better at this video thing! I think.
