For the longest time, I've always wanted to make an actual set of monster cereal as a tribute to the unforgettable childhood classic breakfast.  So when the opportunity came around to be a featured artist in the first ever EVO Art Show, the wheels began spinning.  

 

Designing the characters themselves proved to be a challenge.  I never realized how much detail Capcom put into each marvelous design, but it was an enormous amount of fun adding the 800 pound touch to them.  

Each box contained a one of a kind 8" x 10" signed print of their corresponding fighter!

Designing the packaging was also a blast, creating the logos and coming up with clever names for the cereals would lead to lots of lol moments.  Not only is the artwork and logos specific to each character, but items like ingredients, nutrition, and even the outcome of folding the cereal bag are all carefully detailed on each box.

Watching commercials on tv and walking through supermarket aisles filled with my illustrations on cereal boxes was something I've always dreamed of.  It never really happened, but photoshopping these images was equally as gratifying! 

Who doesn't love finding a toy inside their cereal?  Each box was packed with a "Mystery Gift" to complete the effect of childhood bliss :D

A really fantastic and challenging project in the end, and something I will definitely keep in mind when brainstorming future ideas.  Thanks to all who were involved on this project and those who got this exhibit off the ground.  A special thanks to Miguel Wilson, curator of the first ever EVO Art Show.  Here's to many more!
