I love the popular cartoon art culture that surrounds the marketing, promotion and packaging of our breakfast cereals. If good old fashioned American capitalism got one thing right it is breakfast cereal. Hot diggity dog! I've got some treats for you.
I was shopping at a Target one night when I came across a retro style box of Trix. The design looked like one of "Jolly" Roger Bradfield's. I emailed him and it turns out that it was indeed one of his designs! Amazing!
Also, I found a blog that I just get lost in. It's all about the monster cereals. You know, Count Chocula and Boo Berry. They're all represented at http://monsterscereal.blogspot.com/
They've got it all the toys, the boxes, commercials, the works. Man, this blog is tops.
Hello, world. Very recently my place of employment, the Great Arizona Puppet Theater, asked me to draw a picture of one of Cinderella's mice. The reason for the illustration... temporary tattoos! During the run of the Cinderella puppet show we are going to be handing out free temporary tattoos of my mouse drawing to the kids. I'm pumped.
Here's what the image looks like.
The show hasn't happened yet but I'm already inspired. I just had temporary tattoos made of one of my fish drawings from my short Gulp.
They will look like this.
So, the economy is supposedly bad. At least that's what the hype says. And, the studios aren't hiring like they used to... I guess. Well, get off your butt, pull a drawing out of your pocket and get some temporary tattoos made. People are just dying to pay struggling young artists some pocket change for a boss awesome tattoo... I hope.
