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!
