Frosted Jacks - Cereal Killer

Whilst checking out Lee Cosgrove's wonderful gorillustrator blog, and specifically his Highland Crunch, I discovered the brilliantly macabre Cereal Killers.

For the past twelve years I have been designing the sort of promotional toys that drop out of Nestlé and Kellogg's cereal. The satire and wit on the Cereal Killers' blog struck a bit of a chord with me and I felt that I was suitably experienced to have a crack at my own "Cereal Killer"...




Photo credit for the bowl of cereal goes to Jaci Berkopec from her Flickr account, check out her official website too. I found the picture with a google search and it fitted perfectly with my composition. I've tinkered with it a bit for the added Shining!

I hope you enjoy this and as usual, please feel free to comment.

Really nice work. This is brilliant. I love this movie but this just made me giggle like a little school girl. BTW I would totally buy this if I saw it just for the prize inside.
