Featured Work: ‘Masters of the Sun’, an animated iBook fusing Egyptology, Afrofuturism and L.A. gang culture

We’re happy to share an animated comic/Apple iBook built in Hype called ‘Masters of the Sun‘. The comic was produced by the Black Eyed Peas and voiced by Stan Lee, Queen Latifah, Snoop Dogg & many more. Kelly Gabrysch converted the static layouts into animated pages that synced with the Hans Zimmer soundtrack and voice over from top talent. The animation style Kelly created was tuned to  match the artwork style.We’re happy Kelly brought this project to our attention on the Tumult forums
