My latest project has been collaborating on a set of trading cards inspired by the numerous toxic ingredients found in products we consume every day. Frightening side-effects caused by chemicals in our food, water and home/personal care products are making us sick. Working with artist Bob Lizarraga, we plan to turn these ingredients into the true monsters they are! Above: This sweet sludge lurks in just about everything from soft drinks to jellies and even wheat bread. Dubbed by some as "Liquid Satan", High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) is being blamed for the obesity epidemic and an increase in diabetes in adults and children. Latest studies even show it contributes to cancer cell growth - scary. There are however, many who believe HFCS is safe. It's just sweet innocent sugar, that's all. Nothing to worry about. They might feel that way because HFCS is cheaper and more abundant than real sugar, thereby making profits much more plentiful. All that extra cash keeps Liquid Satan nice and fat, with a closet full of polyester leisure suits and plenty of sharp forks to poke you with. Medium: Ink on paper, digital color. Illustration by 14.
