It’s been some time coming, but over the next few weeks we’re aiming to produce our rainbow bug figurines in larger volume then just the odd prototype here or there. We’ve “heavily” invested in a new airbrush machine and have printed out a small batch (five at first) of the same rainbow bug which we’re planning to finish up in different color schemes.
Definitely a work in progress but still worth sharing as for the last few weeks we’ve been doing some tests to try and integrate facerig studio into our pipeline. The export process is definitely not for the squeamish and can easily trip you up, but the promise of being able to combine multiple tracking devices inside an intuitive application once you do manage to export the character is too tempting not to follow up.
After a two year hiatus we’re going back to the annual children’s book fair in Bologna. We had a great time last time we went in 2015, but have been too busy over the last couple years to join in the fun since then.
We’ve also made some changes in our overall strategy, trying to shift the focus from our interactive books to more tangible figurines and statuettes based on some of our home-grown characters.
