Wacky Packages

Wacky Packages, originally uploaded by manlyartjpc.

To celebrate 35 years (holy crap) of Topps Wacky Packages stickers, they have put out this awesome collection of art from Series 1-7 in its entirety. It inspired me to set up this shot with some of my Wacky Packages stickers. Yes folks, they still make them and I still have to pick up a few packs every once in a while.

If you were a kid in the 70's, or just like well done gross art and sophomoric humor (who doesn't?), this is the book for you. It's really interesting, Pulitzer Prize winning writer/artist Art Spiegelman (Maus) was a gag writer for Topps for 23 years. Also, the famous pulp artist Norm Saunders regularly did art for Wacky Packages. It's a crazy, wonderful world ain't it?

You can get the book ... here.

Whoa! What's going on?!?! Jason's posting art on his blog? That's crazy. Sorry things have been so slow lately. I've been working on a bunch of stuff I can't show yet. I think I should have more art to show in the next week or two as I start working on less top secret projects.

Here's this years t-shirt design I did for Blood Fest. Blood Fest is an annual seven's rugby tournament hosted by the Huns RFC in Austin, TX. So, if you're in Austin on June 21st, swing by Zilker Park and enjoy some violence with grace.
