I love when artists add a lot of extra details to their work, to add even more character or humor. Rainey took up the Fanart Challenge and ran rampant with it! I love all the extra thought he put into this design– from the shape & flavor of the cereal itself, to the prize inside! And Fred’s statement works as a great tagline “Like us, there’s more to this than meets the eye”! (of course, being an 80’s kid, I dig the Transformers reference). Have to admit, when I first saw this I laughed, thinking “WOW, that is one BIG bowl of cereal!” when comparing the size of Zorphbert & Fred’s heads! Thanks for your effort in this Rainey, and for taking the CHALLENGE!
Guys, Rainey is just starting out with a webcomic of his own, called “Reaper’s Legacy”… which sounds creepily cool! Imagine if “Death” (akaka the Reaper) had to train the next in line for his job? Yep, this can only lead to some dark & hilarious adventures! A great combo!
Next week’s spot is OPEN! Who’s up for a cereal-box-design CHALLENGE?! Head HERE for more details.
NEXT WEEKEND! I’m at it again!
Come on out to Awesome Con in DC April 20-21st! Bring the kids, find me in Artist Alley! I’ll have all THREE volumes of Zorpbert & Fred comics, 4 Abby’s Adventures kids books in paper back AND hardcover, plus extra stuff like buttons, magnets, pendants, figurines, prints & more! You know, the usual. Plus, you can just leave me a tip, any kind of tip, for a FREE 3″ button!
Besides having a fantastic guest list (Nicholas Brendon, Ernie Hudson, Phil LaMarr, Billy West, Theo Crane, Larry Hama, Herb Trimpe, Ben Templesmith, Justin Jordan, and dozens more!), Awesome Con has a whole slew of activities, panels, presentations, screenings, and more. There should be something for everyone, even the kiddies!
I’ll be on a Webcomic panel on SATURDAY for those of you starting out, or stumbling through the process!
