This is the second piece I created for the ArtMares show in Charleston, WV. I've wanted to draw the cereal monsters for a while, but they seemed like a pretty common subject among pop culture artists lately. To differentiate my piece from most I've seen I wanted to draw them doing something rather than just rendering them in my style and leaving it at that. I kept with a theme I use quite a bit, which is to take something outlandish and ask "what if that really happened?" In this case, what if monsters actually wanted you to eat a healthy breakfast?
For inspiration I started following the Monsters Cereal Blog, which has a ton of great original art based on the characters.
