Ira Zoot is the founder and fine artist at iZoot.com, iDigits.com and Zoot.com. He's always made it a point to be on the bleeding edge of technology whether it was being one of the first Photographers/Designers in Chicago using Photoshop, putting digital art to fabric, or seeing the development potential for domain names back in 1995.
He's always believed that you have to go after your dreams and take chances to stay in as well as stay ahead in the game. Ira has said,
"Winning" is great but learning from the stumbles along the way are invaluable. This was something I learned long ago and I wish more people could understand. Too many people give up rather than learn from the challenges we have in all paths of our lives. Failures are only a bad thing if you don't learn from them."
When he was a commercial Artist and Product Designer he worked on national campaigns and packaging for McDonald's, Jim Beam, GM, Marshall Field's (now Macy's) and American Girl, among others. He designed lines of toys and soft goods, working with licensed artwork from Disney, Sony, Marvel, Universal, and Pixar. The products he worked on were distributed nationally and very well received. In addition, he's owned and run www.TicketStub.com for the last 14 years. Growing it to one of the largest ticket affiliate sites out there and currently looking at avenues to grow it further.
Now with iZoot.com and iDigits.com he's using his artwork/surface design and getting back to his artistic roots. Zoot has been enjoying and working hard on developing many collections of original artwork for a variety of uses.
His artwork will be directed toward retail consumers in the form of clothing, fine art for decorative use. Ceramic, glass tiles, and mosaics are just a few of the products coming out of the iZoot & iDigits studios to your home.
Zoot's artwork will also be useful for commercial, hospitality, and residential products. In addition to licensing his artwork to be used by other companies, he will also be offering custom designed artwork on assignment. You can see examples of this artwork at www.iDigits.com, on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/iDigitscom and at www.Zoot.com.
Ira said, "I'm very excited about bringing my artwork to the marketplace with iDigits.com and I'm planning to bring on other artists and designers over time. iZoot.com and iDigits.com are going to be THE destinations for digital fine art and surface design!"
