Transcription project - The Garbage Pail Kids

I was brought to the awareness of a childrens tv cartoon from the 80s called "The Garbage Pail Kids", which ties in well with my cartoonish style of drawing. This would be used to somewhat make my work more introverted and self mocking, yet play a big part in the imagery of corrupted innocence as the characters portrayed in the GPK were bright, colourful and bold in appearance - yet often subjected to detestable scenarios.

A series of Topps Cards were created alongside these characters, which further provokes a feel of a mash up between childrens entertainment and dark humour.
