Cereal Comics

Cereal ads in old comics are quite fun to read, as they reflect their TV counterparts on Saturday mornings (do they still have Saturday morning cartoons anymore?). I found these three in an old The Flinstones with Pebbles Gold Key comic (#22, 1964). My favorite is the Lucky Charms ad, but look how boring the box is! (Speaking of cereal boxes, check out these Jay Ward inspired designs.) I don't know who drew these comics, but I'm researching who the cartoonists are. Man, I would so love to have that job drawing cereal ads.

That one kid in the Lucky Charms ad looks suspiciously like a chipmunk.

Busy-ness and games

Hi there! It's been awhile since I've posted anything on my blog. That's because I've been busy working with Zipline Games illustrating iPhone games!
Also look for  scans of illustrations by Mel Crawford, Charlie Harper, Sheila Beckett and more from my collection of vintage children's books in this space.

A sneak peek on a game I have been working on:
