"with my Zwirlz"…..

…"this is how i bring it and play like a girl!"
What the heck is Zwirlz??!!!  As a freelance artist, i am involved in a variety of projects for several companies.  I'm thrilled to be the artist for a brand new innovative App, a game for tween girls called "Zwirlz" available NOW in the iTunes Store!  How cool is that to see my artwork in the iTunes store!!! 

I designed the sweet animated main character named "Zoe".  It was the first time any of my art was animated.  Another huge thrill.
(you can see her dance on the website here: Zwirlz)

 DEFINITION OF ZWIRLZ: "Play the wildly fun, clapping, laughing, dancing, jumping, get-up-and-go game for you and your friends!  Zwirlz is the girl-power, real action game about everything that matters to YOU, like recess, sleepovers, being a babysitter, birthdays and changing the world!"

Isn't it adorable and fun?!!
It's only 99 cents in the iTunes Store! 

Each game consists of a lively rhyme written by my friend Jen Shanley (the company owner), designed to encourage girl power laughter, fun, movement and social interaction.  It's brilliant!  Check it out for your favorite tween girls.
 There are "girl power" coloring sheets that can be downloaded right off the Zwirlz website for free.
 What a i love about this project is that it is a very relevant game for girls in this tech age, that challenges them to get up and move and interact with other human beings!  It's not just playing a mind numbing video game, it's teaching girl power, friendship and physical movement through play and dance.  It's available for iTouch, iPad and iPhone.
Spread the word!  Even if you don't have a little tween girl, share Zwirlz with your friends, neighbors, grandkids, nieces and superstar girls everywhere!  Let me know what you think.  

And Michelle Obama, if you're listening, this is a perfect girl power game supporting your 
"Let's Move" initiative!
