Star Wars Clip-Its

Here's another project I did at Hallmark that went on sale nationally this past week.  They retail for $4.95 and are on sale at the Hallmark sections of stores like Walmart and I assume places like Walgreens and wherever.  This project was a bit of childhood wish fulfillment for me--the little Greg of 1983 who saw Return of the Jedi on opening day would have freaked to know he was gonna get to do this!

Wizard of Oz book

Finally something I can show from my job at Hallmark!  This is a recordable storybook that arrived in Hallmark stores this past week and retails for $29.95.  Basically what you do is press a button and record yourself reading the book, and your voice will be preserved for posterity.  As for the character design, I had to follow what Warner Bros had established in their style guide.  However, it was great to finally color a book myself--I'm so used to somebody else coloring my books because I usually have to go off and draw something else for somebody else.

I snapped a couple of photos of the book on display at a Hallmark store.

Animals colored

For fun I colored 49 of these animal icons I've made.  I'll get them on the portfolio site soon.
