My sister was planning a “princess” party for a bunch of little girls. She had the idea of making a pin-the-kiss-on-the-frog game. So, she asked if I could draw a frog prince for her party. I did a quick search online to see what might already be out there and really wasn’t too impressed with what I found. Of course, there’s no shortage of party games and ideas on Pinterest, but I didn’t see anything that I thought was worth recreating for her party. So I decided to make my own, from scratch.
Sometimes I do a number of thumbnail sketches before I get the result I want, this wasn’t one of those times. I showed my first sketch to my sister and she said she loved it. That was it, it didn’t have to be perfect, so I went ahead and took it into Illustrator for the final graphic illustration.
Once I was done with the final vector illustration, my dad helped me with printing. We added a layer of clear laminate to both protect the print and keep the sticky lips from damaging, or sticking permanently, to the image. That said, we printed ten lips along with the frog prince. Each pair of lips has a number on it, from one to ten, along with some double faced tape on the back.
Overall, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. But, more importantly, all the little princess’s loved it and had a great time at the party.
