Celsys simultaneously launched Clip Studio Paint for Galaxy(*1) on the Galaxy Store globally in August 2020(*2). The Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+ (not yet available in Japan) are the first Android devices to come with Clip Studio Paint pre-installed(*3), and were unveiled at Samsung Electronics’s Galaxy Unpacked 2020 global launch event.
To celebrate the release of Clip Studio Paint for Galaxy, in partnership with Galaxy and Wacom, Celsys held the 2020 edition of their International Illustration Contest in September 2020. Over 28 days, the contest received 18,606 entries from around the world. Comic artist LavenderTowne was chosen as the contest’s Special Judge to pick the winners of the grand prize and her own LavenderTowne Award.
In October 2020, Celsys and Galaxy launched the Art on your Smartphone! New Normal Campaign to support those living in these new normal times with the power of art. The companies released a special movie each featuring Shoko Nakagawa and COWCOW’s illustration process. The companies made donations to the Japanese Red Cross Society in support of medical professions through the power of art, based on the number of times the movies were viewed.
