Original design by Shaun Pinello vector drawing by Made by Cooper
If you’re following me on Instagram (@hellopinello) you may have noticed that I’ve been working on a comic called Sweater Kid. One of the characters in the series is a charming, cape-wearing dog who’s missing a chunk out of his ear.
Last month I ran a Kickstarter campaign to make a hard enamel pin based on this lil guy. (who’s based on my actual dog, also named Bucky) The Design above is the vector file that will be used to produce the actual pin. I’m working with a company called Made by Cooper who took my original design and adapted it to be made on their machines.
This is my original drawing:
Unfortunately because of the pin’s size, only an inch wide, some of the details had to be sacrificed. Over all, with the limitations of the manufacturing process, I think they did a great job staying true to the original design.
The pin is currently in production and I will receive them in early August. You can pre-order your own right now in our shop. All orders receive a digital copy of a short Sweater Kid comic that features Bucky.
