Small Planet’s Dragon Brush Launches in the App Store

Today we highlight a great new made-in-DUMBO app by Small Planet. Ever hear the story of the young boy from China who loved to paint?  As the Chinese folktale goes, he receives a magical paintbrush that makes his drawings come to life and uses it to outwit a greedy emperor.

The folks at Small Planet also have a magic paintbrush (aka incredible tech skills), that have brought this story to life in the form of a children’s book app!  Dragon Brush was written and illustrated by John Solimine and Andy Hullinger and features narration and music from the band The National.  Each page has interactive elements and users can help the main character’s drawings come to life, or make their own with dragon paint.

This beautifully designed App is full of gorgeous artwork and plenty of surprises. Dragon Brush went live on May 23rd and is now available for download through the iTunes App Store.
