mmmm.... cerrrrreal....

Don't you wish cereal boxes looked like they used to? Come on Kelloggs, Post, General Mills - please be cool again! Anyway, here's little Buckshot Billy Wylde of the in development Big City Cartoon "Wylde West" serving as a mascot for the mock Post (please don't sue me) cereal "Cowboy Crispies". Built and coloured in Flash, then aged in Photoshop. Yee-Haw!!!!!!
01/18/06 edit - revised aging to look more like a box, adjusted contrast.

I'm really impressed with your stuff man. You have so many talents all wrapped up into one. You can really tell you spent a lot of thought and effort into making each sketch/piece into it's own idea. What can I say man, I really enjoy your work. I will bookmark your blog and make sure I keep comin' back for more. Thanks for the coffee breaks in the morning, REALLY fun stuff.

If you get time, please check out my blog and let me know what you think. Thanks!
