Yummy Mummy




Doktor Viktor Von Kreep is putting together a book entitled "Cereal Killers." Here's a piece I did for it using a character who never got his rightful due in the ranks of Cereal Mascots, "Yummy Mummy". Yummy Mummy was a fruit flavored cereal with vanilla marshmallows. General Mills never classified it as an actual "Monster Cereal" and was pulled fairly quickly from store shelves. Check out Von Kreep's kreepy-krawly blog at http://monster-shindig.blogspot.com

So, what your telling me is that kids don't take to cereals named after rotting corpses? That's weird.

Welcome back to your blog! It was worth the wait!

Hey Ben

Welcome back to the Blogodome.

Glad to see you are part of Cereal Killers! The book is going to rot, er... rock. Great illustration! Didn't know you severe the head of a ghost.

Awesome! Glad you're back, with colors and everything. I really dig the mummyguy. You know if there's any released images of Ben & Jack, or have you just started production? I can't wait to see what it looks like, but knowing Jorgens prior work, I already know it's going to be awesome. In fact, I might try my luck and send my portfolio up there:D Would love to work on something new and refreshing.

Take Care,

Hans

Thanks to all of you for welcoming me back to my blog. Juanma, (or anyone else) I do have a new email, it's

pelicanandfish@comcast.net

Hans, Jack & Ben is too early in production for any art to be leaked yet. I certainly wouldn't risk the Danish Wrath of Jorgen! But you're right, it's going to be awesome!!!!!!! You should certainly send your portfolio to Laika, it's a great place to work. You should be able to find info about submissions on their website laika.com.
