(Lets see who knows about these cards) For as long as I can remember my mom had these sticker trading cards with her, called the Garbage Pail Kids, they came out in 1985 by the Topps Chewing Gum,inc. I don’t know when she got them but I know she had them since I was born. Janet Planet was always my favorite out of the pack of singles and repeats my mom had. It always seemed so odd to me that these things were an alternative of the Cabbage Patch Kids. Some freaked me more then others but almost all of them just grossed me out with a hint of hilarious. Never really thought to look into them until now however, it‘s funny to have something that was interesting to you most of your life and to not research it without a reason, like homework. It was interesting to learn what I could about them, who knew they were even still around to this day, apparently still in production, and the concept and style of them hasn’t changed much. They even have a website to show and sell these cards. Needless to say, these kids are freaky. Of the ones my mom has, like I said Janet was my favorite, she wasn’t creepy or gross to me. For some reason even to this day I find her very cute, I think it was the colors that were given to her I liked most, bright colors have always been a fascination for me.( Ha, they even came out with a movie.) I think these cards were made by a group of artists don't know of them all, all I could find was Mark Newgarden, someone that was part of the team. Anyways, I don’t see myself ever drawing Cabbage Patch Kids or these Garbage Pail Kids in that manner, but parodies are always funny, it be interesting to see if I could ever make my own parodies with my art some day.
