A few weeks ago I shared a first look at the Vinylmation-inspired award for the upcoming Radio Disney Music Awards show on April 27 in Los Angeles, California. The event will feature live performances from some of Radio Disney’s biggest stars, and will include awards as voted by Radio Disney fans. That evening, fan-selected stars will receive “Ardy,” the award name chosen by fans on Radio Disney’s official Facebook page. I recently visited artist Lin Shih at Disney Design Group in Florida to learn how he designed this iconic award.

Fans can continue voting for their favorite Radio Disney stars through April 14 on
