August 7, 2019 The Jim Henson Company and Pixite, Inc. Explore New Worlds Through The Magic of Story and Color

 


San Diego, CA, (August 7th, 2019) – The Jim Henson Company, pioneers at the junction of technology and entertainment, has partnered with Pixite, Inc., to bring the timeless tales of Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, and Farscape to artists and creators on-the-go through Pixite's mobile coloring app, Pigment.

Beloved Henson properties Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, and Farscape have been transformed into digital coloring books for Pigment, unleashing creative spirits the world over to join forces with their favorite characters and indulge in a beloved fantasy world through the wizardry of mobile art technology. The exquisite artwork combined with a variety of creative tools at their fingertips lets colorists bring these stories to life in new and personalized ways, wherever they may be.

Where The Jim Henson Company has long had a foothold in innovative storytelling and world-building, Pixite has carved out a name for itself in the world of mobile art and design. The two companies have discovered common ground and their joint efforts now offer people a new outlet for their innate inventiveness while serving as a reminder that there is always something beautiful to be created when imagination and the tools for its expression unite.

“In this stressful, adult world, it’s easy to forget that the goodness you create is most important. Kids, and especially Jim Henson, always seemed to understand that best,” said Pixite’s Co-Founder, Eugene Kaneko. “Now, The Jim Henson Company and Pixite take another step toward the goal of inspiring people to stay in touch with their proverbial ‘inner child’ by bringing together story, technology, and coloring.”
