Decomposed Sugar Limbs













This was a super fun project for 1313 Midnite Kreepshow I did recently! Check 'em out for some wayback monsterism. If all goes well, the coffee table book will be called "Cereal Killers" and it's gonna feature a buncha twisted cereal mascots from artists like Derek Yaniger and Jay Stephens. I'm lookin' forward to seein' everyone's stuff! I'll keep ya posted and letchya know when and where you nab a copy. A wrap around cover, a section of artist sketches - the whole shebang!

I also decided on the first version here. Those are the original colors. I really like the warmer one though. Colors clash a little but it feels aged by the sun. I thought it best to go with my original vision though.

I can't wait to see the book - sounds lie a great subject matter -

I hope it's as good as the "Garbage Pail Kids Movie" ;)

Also, If you have any advice on how to get involved on a book project like this - I'm really interested. I'd like to try something that involves one piece of art that other artists work on too.

Dang!
I actually have a Sugar Bear all sketched out for this and on the brink of being colored.
And he's eating someone!
Who knew anyone else would remember Sugar Bear?
Seriously, this did turn out really nice though.
Ah well, back to the drawing board for me. D'oh!

Hey Bob,
Once again this Sugar Limbs pin-up is way bad ass!
Can't wait to get this book done so folks can enjoy
all of the ghoulish mascots. If you know anyone that wants to contribute a pin-up send them to vonkreep@1313magazine.com

Your pal,

Von Kreep

Hey Bob

Found your blog by searching for "Cereal Killers". I just finished my illustration for the book and wanted to see if I could dig up anyone else's artwork. I found a bunch of artists and they all look excellent!

Yers is one of my favs so far. Rabid Bear is bad ass! Really dynamic shapes all around. You had fun with the fonts too. THe red tips on the fork is a nice touch as well.

Can't wait for the book!

Glad I found your blog. Will check back soon.

HAHAHA! Yuck. I think you were right in going in with your first idea, no fading.

animal qwacker - don't worry too much if there's repeating cereal brands. Everyone's got their own take, it seems.

Bob, this is wicked. Sugah Bear's crazy delicious.
