Hard Rock Cafe Tokyo Uyeno Eki

Another one of my pins for Hard Rock Cafe showed up in the wild! This one was a unique project. Pandas are a common motif in pins for Japan, but this one is unique for the other animal in the design. Apparently, a nearby zoo has a shoebill stork that is well loved by everyone that visits it. I'm hoping that I did that permanent grump face some justice.

Hard Rock Cafe Munich

Most of my clientele are various art departments at Disney. Occasionally, I get work from another big pin seller, Hard Rock Cafe. I saw that one of my designs surfaced at a Cafe all the way in Germany. They asked for a girl wearing one of their famed rock and roll memorabilia. Here's a concept I put together that eventually became the pin.

That's A Lot of Hair

I came across another one of my pins released recently. This time, I did some work for the Mickey's of Glendale shop at Walt Disney Imagineering. I was tasked with drawing characters inside these really cute shield locket hinge pin things they gave me. Below is my first sketch of probably my favorite out of the bunch, Merida.

Mother's Day 2017 With Finding Dory

In honor of this past Mother's Day, The Disney Parks released a limited edition pin that I designed for them. I think it was only available at the parks and such, but it was so cool to finally see this piece in person! Below are some peeks at how this project got from start to finish.
