Disney Family Fun

I'm so excited to share with you this next project! Are you familiar with Disney's FamilyFun magazine? (they also have an iPad app) It's loads of fun. And for the last several months they have been doing something called Badges of Fun. The idea is that the kids collect a new badge each month when they complete a specific "challenge", and put it on a printable poster. Each badge represents an activity the kids are to do.
Are you wondering why I'm telling you all this? It's because I got to design the badge for the month of March! They have been approaching artist/bloggers to design these badges and there is a wonderful variety of them. For March, the badge represents Eat Dinner Together as a Family. Using my Colored Spoon technique, I created a family of silverware to represent family mealtime. And here's the badge:

From their website you can download each badge and cut it out and put it on your poster, like so:

It was a fun project to do and they were really great to work with. When I was in high school my plan was to study Illustration in college and then become an animator for Disney. Though my plans changed some, I guess you could say that in a sense I've now fulfilled that dream of working for Disney! So thank you, Family Fun Magazine! Pin It
