Cannibal Fat Camp
I was very excited to be chosen as the illustrator/designer for the cover of Mark Scioneaux and David Hayes' new novella "Cannibal Fat Camp", published by StrangeHouse Books and being released this March. This gross and frightening tale is sure to have readers wanting even more from these accomplished authors.
I had a lot of fun creating a book cover that was a parody of a Garbage Pail Kids card. I tried to pay attention to details from the cards when making this, including painstakingly drawing the "Cannibal Fat Camp" out in the same manner as the "Garbage Pail Kids" logo, doing the authors' names just like the GPK card titles, and even creating the decal cutout line with a "Peel Here" instruction. :)
