A good number of years ago, I had the lovely privilege of getting to draw a McDonalds Happy Meal box (original art for sale HERE) featuring Batman, Robin and their supporting cast of villains. I was sent a set of the toys available with the promotion…
And I still have the original artwork (which you can see for sale on this very blog…). But I never got a chance to see the actual box itself as it was only part of an American promotion, and we didn’t get the boxes here in the Northern land of frozen igloos and French hockey. But at a convention a couple of months ago, I was given a copy of the box in mint condition from a fan. Very Cool!
That’s the “front” (if there is such a thing on a Happy Meal Box).
And that’s the back. I’m delighted with how it looks in colour, and delighted that my copy is flat, and free of French Fry grease. It’s one of the few things I’ve done that I never had a copy of, and though it was a long wait, I’m really happy to have the box.
Of course it turns out, I could have bought one off of ebay for two bucks. But how was I to know?
As for today, I’m back to work drawing Batman doing something awful with a toaster, I’ll let you know when it’s coming out (soon, I hope).
Ty the Guy OUT!
