This past August I met an amazing individual at the Chicago Comic Convention: Topher Ellis.
Topher was promoting his new book on cereal, The Great American Cereal Book. I was more than excited about the book, and spent some time talking with Topher. My cereal passions were inflamed, and I asked Topher if there was anything I could ever do to help him out in regards to illustration etc.
Topher then told me about his cereal e-newsletter, and asked if I could do an illustration for the next issue. The above illustration is what I came up with.
You should really check out Topher's newsletter and cereal website. Any cereal lover will be in for some very happy reading.

I really hope to be able to do more illustrations for Topher in the future.
In the meantime, I will pour a bowl or two.

A while ago I had posted this illustration which I had submitted to "Cicada" magazine for a creative contest they held. Well, I am excited to report that they accepted the illustration and printed it in their Fall issue!
The top image is a photo of the illustration printed in the magazine in black and white, and below is the illustration in its original colour.
Here is my original post for the illustration.
