Gosh! I ought to get some!
Another contest entry for generator website Seventh Sanctum, this time it's all about CANDY: seventhsanctum.com/contests.ph…
The results I picked, as you may well imagine, were:
Jellied Red Hot Toffee
Plum Whipped Toffee
As with the B-movie contest, this gave us a chance to flex our pop-culture muscles. The idea was to reproduce a magazine ad from the '30s-'40s. I took the proportions from a vintage National Geographic and the texture from a '50s Supermouse comic book I had bought recently.
I owe a great deal of influence to the wonderful book Meet Mr. Product
by Warren Dotz, featuring vintage advertising art from across the decades.
The final product is a collaboration (Fatalhilarity providing the candy itself and the Crayola color), but the main concept and design are mine.
