Denver Video Scribe: Telespine

You may remember Jonathan illustrates video scribes (also called “whiteboard animation”). He’s done a few recently in Denver/Boulder for Telespine, Asurion and Verizon. Here’s the Telespine video scribe. Listen for the funny background words and noises. Love the post-production on this one—Room 214 does such a great job, as always.

Designing Icons for Luv

Happy Friday! Dropping in here for a sec to show off casually display the beautiful logo and icons Jonathan created for my new blog, The Penzy. The subtitle of the blog is “Faith + Pretty Things.” It’s a blend of Christian inspiration plus indie home decor, jewelry, art, etc. I love faith-y blogs and I love indie craft/design, so voila! I decided to blog about both of them, together.

Naturally, the next stop was to tell Jonathan I needed a logo. And icons.

And then I scrawled designs on a napkin. And scraps of paper. It was so sad panda. I can write, but I cannot draw what’s in my head.

Patient husband he is, Jonathan sat down one evening and cranked these out. We tweaked and discussed and swapped colors and fonts until we were both happy. I love them, I really, really do! Go see them in action at The Penzy.

Character Design: Under the Sea

I posted recently about a new children’s book Jonathan was working on with some plucky sea creatures. The good news is that he’s finished the coloring (the illustrations I posted were in black and white). Now, it’s with his agent and we could not be more thrilled. Someone, somewhere will fall in love with this new story. We just know it (the dolphins told us).

We’re Denver-based illustrator and character designer Jonathan Fenske and Jennifer Manske Fenske. Check out Fat and Appy, our online store for modern art for kids featuring Jonathan’s illustrations.
