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!
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.
