Writer/artist Neal Adams has been named as the national spokesperson for an upcoming open-source animation platform for mobile devices called Swipe. Adams and company founder/CTO Satoshi Nakajima will debut the software at Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo 2016 in October.
“Many may find it odd that a comic book artist has an interest in animation. However, animation also plays a central focus in my career at my studio – Continuity – is an established animation production resource for top production companies and advertising agencies," said Adams. " I always want to remain part of the cutting edge of what’s happening in animation and design, and it’s for that reason that I was instantly captivated by Swipe.
"Software engineer Satoshi Nakajima has developed an impressive tool that can be enjoyed by everyone. Whether it’s a consumer who wants to energize their emails with animation or top-flight designers creating the next great digital graphic novel, Swipe has no limits in its usage," continued Adams. "I am excited to bring the message of Swipe to designers, would-be designers and everyone in-between and look forward to being on-hand at Stan Lee’s Comikaze to showcase this extraordinary digital design platform."
The flagship application of Swipe is Swipe Studio, which is currently in beta testing on iPhones and iPads.
“We are thrilled to be joined by the great Neal Adams as National Spokesperson for Swipe," said Nakajima. "It is extremely gratifying to have our platform endorsed by Neal as we introduce our technology to the creative community as well as the public at large. I look forward with great enthusiasm to working alongside Neal, and to the panel session we will be sharing at Stan Lee’s Comikaze."
