Garbage Pail Kids + Art = Gallery1988

Only Gallery 1988 can do this!
and this flyer is the coolest flyer ever.

so crazy!

Did you collect Garbage Pail Kids? Me and my sister had a good collection. 
Of course we ended up getting rid of them while growing up. REGRETS!
But the past 4 or 5 years me and my son have been re-collecting them.
Its been super fun. I go to comic stores and flea markets with my checklist! ha! 
well Ill be honest, I always have the checklist in my purse!! 

I spent a lot of my time drawing these cards as a kid, either for friends or myself. 
 I actually learned a lot from these cards, so its pretty cool to be an adult and re-creating what was a big part of my childhood. 

Image of my piece soon to come!

Wow, what a great flier!

GPK was a big part of my childhood too. My cousin & I collected 'em, do you remember the really large ones? But yeah, what happened to my collection, IDK...sucks! I started recollecting 'em too when they came out.

Um, next time I see you I'm going to ask to see your checklist, lol. Excited to see what you came up with! :)

I actually found some of the big ones. Also for a couple weeks there was this cool old guy at the flea market selling GPK's in the packages, he also had fold out posters I bought 3 of them and my son has them hanging in his room. I didnt even know about those.

haha ok, Ill prove it to you! I truly am a dork haha

My brother and I use to have loads of them. When they re-released them with new ones I wanted to start collecting them again by then I think I was getting married so hubby didn't want me to have another collectable. lol

Can't wait to see what you came up with.

Hi Shannon!

I know, I get so mad that I re-collect things I already had! seems silly, but a collector has their own way of justifying it right? haha
Sounds like you are a collector of sorts too?
I hope I dont ever get out of control!
I watch the show Hoarders to get a grip on myself haha
