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.
