Obliterary Journal Vol 2 (Non-Veg).

The Obliterary Journal Vol 2. (Non-Veg)  is a meaty new anthology of short comics and artwork by Blaft Publications. It’s themed over the idea of people eating animal flesh, and contains “talking chicken legs, giant man-eating serpents, plenty of aliens, a few mind-blowing statistics, and some excellent kebabs” (says the Blaft blogpost with a loud wink); dreamed up by a brilliantly wacky bunch of writersandartists.

Here is my design for the anthology’s covers featuring a chain-smoking bubble-blowing lollehpop-eating maami we’re calling Meatface Aunty. The cover’s been printed in three different versions like so.

The back cover carries a hand-lettered list of the contributing folks, individually crafted, just like old times. The nutritional facts info on brown paper was subtly doctored in the Blaft word-processor to feature brilliant kicks in the head like krait venom and baby phat and vitamin X. And the flaps of the book are full of nomworthy halal-meat labels pasted on at Blaft. Here is some detail of the back cover and flap.

The book was launched with much fanfare, elaneer and coupons for fish at the Nochikuppam fish market in Chennai.
