In the beginning of 2011 Peter Grosshauser was asked by Project WET to create artwork for a website they were building. Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) is based in Bozeman, MT and they provide educational materials all over the world concerning water and water use. Peter has been working for them for many years and they wanted the artwork to reflect the same style he used to illustrate nearly 50 kids books for them previously. The assignment was to create an interactive, animated web game that would be fun for children. Basically Peter’s job was to create all the frames, borders, and all the different elements that were involved in each subtopic and game. Each character illustrated had to be in different layers (different layers for arms, legs, tails, etc…) for animation purposes.
His favorite part of this project was creating the home page globe with all the different elements on different layers which spin at different speeds. The Blue Traveler game was also fun to create. Peter worked with Big Bad Tomato out of Los Angeles for this section of the web site. All illustrations were created in Painter and Photoshop while listening to many hours of the Ricky Gervais podcasts! View this fun site at – http://www.discoverwater.org/
