oh d-d-dear dear...

hello all-i have just seen the new golden nuggets packs-with new character illustrations-NOT DONE BY ME!-i must add..!!
i told you that the graphics company i had produced artwork for for 8 years stiffed me recently...and decided to have a go at it themselves...well.....if you see a pack-judge for yourself..i am biased and a little miffed too-so my views will not be written here..all i will say is it is a real disappointment.....
so to cheer myself up-i will post my some of my favorite nuggets b-of-packs-this was done in 2000-in 'sunnier' times.
ho my gran used to say..which about sums up how i feel tonight..

cereal box repros

i have collected vintage cereal boxes for a while-and decided to re-illustrate-recreate these impossible to find classics for my own collection-
i was in cereal graphics-old logo-dry brush-geek heaven doing while it lasted.-i would love to see designs like these on boxes now-let me know what you think of them.

we get last minute requests for black and white images to accompany the strips-sometimes they come out ok-but i am usually moaning by then..why didnt they ask me earlier?..mutter mutter harrumph....stomp...that sort of thing..


blob-a-job week

i raided the archive and these guys jumped out-they were for a pitch back in crusty 1999..

Q-"why did the chewing gum cross the road?..."
A"..because it was stuck to the chickens foot.."
