The first week of July marked the beginning of Back to School season for 2011. Naturally, I have been counting down the months for this ever since spring of 2010: mostly because I can finally share with you all that I worked on last year. This week, I scouted out the lunchbox section at my local Toys’R’Us and was able to find these goodies all sitting on the shelves.
I’ll be sure to add better product photos to the portfolio page as I upload that section, but for now, run to your local Toys’R’Us if you want these, because they sure were getting picked over fast! (Or you could just find them online: Harry Potter, Smurfs, Owl)
Harry Potter Gryffindor lunchbox:
Just in time for the last movie!! Can I even begin to tell you what a fangirl I was while working on this one? And the icing on the cake was having this lunchbox getting sold into stores: first time a Harry Potter lunchbox has done that since the first movies came out…10 years ago. Woot!
The Smurfs Movie lunchboxes:
Yes, that one on the right is shaped like a mushroom house. The movie art was cute (especially Brainy Smurf), but I really hope that next year they allow us to sell the Smurfs Classic line I also developed. Who wouldn’t want a food jar with Jokey Smurf blowing something up??
And lastly, my set of Owl lunchboxes that I illustrated myself:
Isn’t she a fancy little thing? There is also a matching standard lunchbox featuring 3 owls at night, but it was nowhere to be found on the shelves…
