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.
