This is only the beginning of projects LDS animator and director Scott T. Petersen has worked on. Now the head of Golden Street Animation, Petersen has another project that may not be as well-known, but is certainly loved among LDS members. Missionary TOONS actually began while Petersen was serving a mission in Guatemala and given a specific assignment to uplift the attitude of the Zone he was serving in. After talking with his companion, Petersen created the image below, which has now been sent across the world.
Today, Petersen has an entire line of Missionary TOONS to encourage missionaries and make them smile. On his official website, Petersen said, “I have tried to keep the quality high and the content meaningful, that it might be a useful tool in promoting the principles of missionary work and the gospel. Some have a strong scriptural based message and others are just meant to uplift and be funny or just remind you of your own mission.”
