There are some amazing artists out there. Some people and their art become famous and recognized around the world. Other people and their art never make it past the drawing board (so to speak). Comicons are my favorite place to find one of a kind pieces and purchase from artists who may become the next Stan Lee or DaVinci. Art is all about personal taste. But once in a while, something just grabs you and you need to own it.
I was wandering around Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo before the doors opened looking at all the artwork. One artist caught my eye, so I stopped to check it out. As I was about to leave, one of the staff came rushing up with a few people and was all excited telling her companions that they needed to check out the art & the artist’s computer tablet as well. This intrigued me, so I stayed for a moment longer, and I’m glad I did.
Not only was his art really good- but the artist himself created an app that brings the art to life when you looked through your screen at it. The artist is utilizing augmented reality and it brings his art to life. Fantastic selling feature! It’s bringing how people view art into a whole new genre. I have seen others try it a few times over the past couple of years; but never to the detail and care as this.
Check out their website for more info at DPI Studios. I hope to see more of Jaysin’s art as well as more artists adopting this idea.
