Blideo #1: Carrie Harper makes iPhone 4 covers from original art
By Nico Boesten
Every once in a while I win stuff. Not the Lotto or anything, but a free Tim Horton's coffee or a vaccuum consultation.
Well, the other day, I got a Facebook message from a rad local visual artist (Carrie Harper from the Pear Workshop) saying "You won an art skin for an iPhone 4". Sick.
It was such a creative idea and way for a visual artist to make money that I had to interview her and find out some more about who she is and what she does. I had met her at Artwalk last year and was super impressed with her unique style but this latest idea was brilliant.
We are now talking about collaborating on an idea that would combine a fundraising event with art, iPhone skins, music, and beverages. More to come, but for now just watch the vid and then check out her site or go and buy one of her iPhone art skins here.
