Not good with graphic design but hey!
would you like your own character badge? I'm open for traditional, color pencil badge commions for a short time!
These will be artistic liberty and I will not accept rush orders either. Keep in mind I only have limited colors to work with and so if you have a complicated design the badge may be of a different shade.
Bade sizes start in the range of 4" and can be thighs up or a full body.
Prices start at $8 per design but will notexceed $15 for the moment.
if you're interested please comment below or PM me for more details and a quote

I attended a lecture tonight by Paul Gosling of Galway-Mayo IT in Louth County Museum.
The title of the talk was ‘Cumann na mBan badges: Irish women and rebel insignia, 1914-1921’. "Cumann na mBan or The Women’s Council was established in April 1914 as a women's auxiliary organisation to the Irish Volunteers. Between 1914 and 1921, when the truce between Republican and British forces came into effect, the organisation went through several phases of development. One minor but striking aspect of Cumann na mBan during this period was the creation and distribution of small metal membership badges many of which have since found their way into family display cabinets, regional and national museums and auctioneer’s catalogues.
The lecture explored the origins and design of these badges from their initial appearance as plain base-metal lapel pins in late 1914 or early 1915. By 1921, these humble symbols of membership had evolved into something quite different – mementos of service made from the finest materials (silver and gold). In the process, the design of the badges went through a series of subtle changes which may in some way reflect the evolution of Cumann na mBan itself.
Particular emphasis was placed on the role of the Dundalk printing company, Dundalgan Press, in the design and manufacture of the Cumann na mBan badges. Their involvement was part of a wider engagement by the company in the production of printed materials and accessories for the republican movement, an engagement which appears to have begun with the re-branding of the company as ‘Dundalgan Press’ in 1908."
Research on the badges was conducted with Ailbhe Rogers of the National University of Ireland, Maynooth, the results of which are being prepared for publication.
