FUN FORE ALL MASCOT CREATION
One of my favorite tasks at Fun Fore All was the creation of a mascot, Sam the Squonk. I strongly dislike it when a mascot has no reason to represent the park or place that it does. So, I worked very hard to make Sam an integral part of the park's story. In summary, Sam is the loneliest and saddest creature in the world until he comes to Fun Fore All, where he can do nothing more than have the best time of his life. Sam also came with a storybook, which not only integrated Sam's story with the park's story, but was one that helped open up conversations about childhood depression and means to combat this terrible disease. The work you see here is the work that is currently completed on Sam the Squonk's integration into the park.
