Potato Chip Science

June 4th, 2010 | 1 Comment

Workman just published a new activity kit called Potato Chip Science, for which I drew the cover illustration. If you’re looking at the picture thinking “well Brian, your going insane, for that is not a book. It’s a bag of potato chips!” I couldn’t blame you. The packaging is meant to resemble a bag of chips, and in fact the bag is filled with plastic chips (something like those packing peanuts you get in shipping boxes). There is also a book of fun projects one can make with potatoes, as well as some of the materials you would need to do the projects.
Originally I was up for illustrating the entire book, but in the end they asked me to do the cover. Go out and get yourself this kit and spend the weekend making stuff out of potatoes!

    That is so freakin cool.

    Funny thing is, as corny as it seems, I’d imagine having ones artwork ON a bag of chips would (in a lot of ways) be an even greater buzz that simply having an illustration in a magazine or book.
