I started off wanting to write about the illustration on the back of my box of Boo Berry, but after searching the internet for some time, while I did find some very nostalgic writing about Count Chocula and his cereal pals, I couldn’t find much more than the same wikipedia article regurgitated and rearranged. Finally, I came across a blog called Cereal Killers. Cereal Killers is a “koffin table” art book in the making, featuring horror themed cereal boxes. The illustrations I’ve chosen are Sugar PostMort-mmmms by Johnny Yanok, Jorge Lacera's Cthulhu Crunch, Behemoth Bites by Chris Lee, and Lubri-oh’s by Rick Dienzo Blanco. The book has a variety of different artists, but I think it’s the content that draws me to the images, regardless of their style. I couldn’t find any information on whether it was ever finished or not, the blog was last updated in 2008. With over seventy-five illustrators and animation artists responsible for shows like Ren & Stimpy, Venture Brothers, and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, it’d be a shame if it wasn’t.
