Peeky - Author, Project Manager, Webmaster, Art Director, Producer, Publisher

Greetings!

 

Thanks for checking me out. My name is Peeky aka Bob Moyer. I came by this name from my granddaughter. When she first was able to talk, she called me Peeky, no one knew why, but the name stuck. At six,  Madeline knows me by no other name and neither do the grandchildren that follow. I like it - it is short, easy to spell, quick to write and if one name worked for Aeristotle and Plato, why not for me.  More about me in Kickstarter, but read on. The real talent and much merit goes to the rest of The Wizard Was Odd Squad. 

 

Ruslan Vigovsky - Cover, Character, and Scene Artist.

Ruslan Vigovsky is an Ukrainian artist, born in Kiev in 1967. From early childhood, he studied art at the Drawing Studio, children's School of Arts. He graduated from the State School of Art in 1985 and continued his education in art graphics in department of the Polygraphic Institute in Kyiv.

Ruslan has honed his craft and after many years, he is proficient in many different techniques: traditional and digital. His art works are in many private collections around the world.

Ruslan Vigovsky has participated and continues to participate in international art projects, exhibitions, and competitions and was awarded prizes.

I am very appreciative of Ruslan's patience and expertise. I have learned a good deal from him about printing a quality digital art product with considerable longevity. Another thing that I like about him is that he has a holistic approach that encompasses all aspects of his work where I as a layman tend to be focused on parts rather than the whole.

Character and Scene Development contains our discussions, opinions, disagreements, and accomplishments. It also contains images, both that we created and those that I would pull in to help me convey what my words could not - a picture is worth a thousand words....

Anna Shpylevska - Scene Artist

Anna Shpylevska is an Ukrainian artist who loved to draw since early childhood. Though the way to the professional work as an artist
was long. Anna graduated from Kyiv Institute of International Relationships and worked as a producer with commercials and
feature films. After realizing that drawing was still the only passion, she decided to devote more time to it.

Eventually moving to SA, Anna graduated from School of Art and Design in Johannesburg as an illustrator and concept artist. She still
spends most of her time developing her skills - both in digital and traditional art.

Maria Riega - Translated Kickstarter for our Spanish Patrons.

Maria has done an incredible job for us. All of the translations are hers. Rather than list her merits, I am including a portion of our discussion which convinced me that she was the right person for the Kickstarter translation and will be the best person to translate the Wizard Was Odd series.


I do more than word by word translations. I adapt, localize and transcreate texts, i.e. I find equivalences to wordplays, idioms, colloquialisms and cultural references, juggling with words until they sound nice to the ear, flowing naturally, while keeping the spirit, tone and emotions of the source text. I have translated, edited and proofed both fiction and nonfiction books, most of them are sold through Amazon and Barnes & Noble (including corresponding translator's credit). Referrals from authors available upon request. Some titles include: Children’s books: Oliver and Jumpy - the Cat Series – 62 children’s books (Translation) The Sparrow Family by Peter Mayer & Jillian Dister (Translation sold in Apple Store) Sal, Captain of the Baby Guards by Jennifer Reinoehl (Editing and Proofreading) Oliver and Morris by Hans Breuker (Translation) Puppy School Books 1, 2 & 3 by Hans Breuker (Translation) Novels and Fiction books: Zombie Fallout, book 1 by Mark Tufo (Translation) Zombie Fallout 2: A Plague Upon Your Family by Mark Tufo (Translation) Zombie Fallout 3: The End... by Mark Tufo (Translation) Amaury's Hellion by Tina Folsom (Editing and proofreading) Gabriel's Mate by Tina Folsom (Editing and proofreading) Yvette's Haven by Tina Folsom (Editing and proofreading) A Touch of Greek by Tina Folsom (Editing and proofreading) A Scent of Greek by Tina Folsom (Editing and proofreading) I blame Stephen King by Jason Finnerty (Translation) The Sheikh's Secret Bride by Leslie North (Translation) Taking back Tara by Eve Paludan (Translation) Nonfiction books: The God Diagnosis by Greg E. Viehman (Translation) The Purpose by Rick Lindal (Editing and Proofreading) How to Start a Creative Business by Doug Richard (Translation) The Anatomy of a Disciple by Rick Taylor (Editing and Proofreading) Why Didn’t They Teach Me This in School? by Cary Siegel (Translation) Family & Money Matters by Elaine King (Editing and Proofreading) Introduction to Sign and Wonders by Augusto L.
