Sketchpad Escape is a screensaver application for Mac OS X, available in the Mac App Store. In order that previous customers of our similarly named app can receive this improved version and future updates, this app will be free until further notice!
It's a screensaver about one designer's doodles. Not just any doodles but that tiny percentage that have a life of their own, standing out from the tangle of scribbles and cup rings on the sheet by your keyboard, or the pages of your sketchbook.
"Over the years I've worked at a lot of places - first at The Designers Republic as a designer and from then as a 2D/3D artist in videogame development. In that time there's been one working constant, the scrap paper and sketchbook pages covered with doodles piling up in my studio at home.
Hidden among those scribbles and symbols lurk characters and creatures, doodled and forgotten. Until now. I thought it was time to do something with them. Searching through the four inch pile of papers and sketchbooks I've chosen sixty-odd that appealed to me. Scanned, cleaned up, and named, these sketchbook escapees are ready for their close up.
I hope you enjoy them.
