Vladimir Kush is my favorite artist, I've been a fan and collected his art for over 10 years. Our house is like a mini gallery :)
I'd seen him at gallery shows and things over the years, and I've got a tattoo inspired by one of his pieces.
Nearly a year and a half ago, I heard he was going to be making a children's book. I got in contact, wondering about converting it into an iPad app. Vladimir had the idea to just skip making a book and go straight for an app!
We met and I showed a very rough demo app in September 2010, that sold the idea and direction for flowing painting for the app. It took a lot of work since then to make it really work fast and smooth, but that first demo got the ball rolling.
After a very long time, him painting, us programming, it's in the App Store. I think it's the most beautiful, amazing work we've done (and we've done a lot over the years). We'd always worked with the thought, "Vladimir's art is going to be in museums some day, so this has to be that good too."
