Vendetta Arts and a number of Advocate artists have been busy recently getting involved in a number of new digital illustration and animation projects. Working with a number of different clients our artists have been producing illustrated content for children’s Ebooks and other digital storytelling formats. Check out this showreel to see what we have been getting up to…

Advocate Art would like to introduce you to the two fabulous interns that we currently have working with us…
Firstly there is Claire, who studied Illustration at Cambridge School of Art. She started last week and so far she has been busy uploading artists work to the website and helping our agents with mocking up greetings card range boards as well as contributing to the post Bologna follow ups that we talk about in the blog post SENDS SENDS SENDS.
And then there is Sian who joined us this week. She studied illustration and digital animation at the University of Southampton. She has also been helping us with our Bologna sends and catalogue updates. Have a look at more of her work on her website.
Watch this space for more from Sian and Claire…
Here at the Vendetta offices we are the proud new owners of a cool but somewhat creepy Vendetta Mask.
From the original DC Comic called ‘V for Vendetta‘ Written by Alan Moore (we are all big fans) through to the feature film based on the same story through to recent protests where the Mask featured predominantly.
The mask has became synonymous with ideas of anarchy and rebellion.
Have a look at the BBC’s interview with Alan Moore to see his thoughts on the symbol he has created.
This is a symbol that resonates deeply with us here at Vendetta were we have purposely set out to resist the mundane, try to do thing differently with our own creative twists and choose to avoid the main stream studios.
So as you can see. We really love our mask!
Advocate is a leading supplier of content for children’s educational and picture book publishers. Vendetta creates animation, VFX and audio for the gaming industry, film and adverting industry. The alliance pools expertise and resources from both camps, targeted at Children’s Publishers looking at having their publishing lists in the new iPad format.
Vince Verma CEO of Vendetta made the announcement at the recent London Book Fair conference, “Advocate knows kids publishing, – and they have been around so long even I recognise some of the books their artists have worked on! Advocate and Vendetta have worked together on several iPhone applications in the past so we were the first call when they were looking for technical know-how on how to help their clients onto the iPad.”
Edward Burns commented on his blog after the show: “Vendetta are easy to work with… they don’t hang around, they are straight talkers and have a really fresh approach. They have some of the best designers and programmers in the business and a huge freelance pool. I like the way they structure projects in the same way as you would see a film or TV programme put together. They place the best audio, animators, writers and programmers and co-ordinate it with their in-house team. It means they can ramp up their operation for the big budget or short deadline projects.”
Children’s book publishers are not waiting to see if the iPad catches on in the UK, with already over 1 million sold in the USA it seems that this is a trend that will continue over here. Advocate Art have already secured several conversion projects from their existing clients including several “self-publishing” assignments.
Vendetta’s Art Director, Ava, comments: “We recommend to publishers that they don’t loose sight of the story telling element of the book or the book’s USP when bringing it to life on the iPad. It’s easy to make it look like the Homer Simpson title sequence (from The Simpson film) – it uses every visual effect available! This just detracts from the real reason the book is being purchased- it can spoil the book’s appeal. The iPad should be thought of as just another format – it can now make a book more audible, animated and interactive, sure, but not into some crazy toy that you can prod and swipe for the sake of it.”
