I've recently been thinking about the kinds of illustration projects I like the most and that I'd like to do more of. A dream project would be to design a range of cereal box characters, and as no-one's currently asking me to do them I thought I'd just go ahead and make them myself! These are the first two in an on-going mini-series of cereal box artworks/characters – Pieces O'Eight, the delicious, sugar-frosted corn snack, and Zombits, the chewy braaaiiinnns based cereal snack.
I'd love to get some merch printed with these characters on as the range develops, so I've also developed a slightly 80's retro two-colour version for screen printing onto t-shirts, mugs, etc. A custom printed cereal bowl would be amazing!
