llustrator Robert Jimenez was inspired to create the new "Garbage Pail Kids Kitchen" one day eating lunch. Robert is a longtime illustrator of Garbage Pail Kids (GPK) cards and was peeling a banana when he had a flashback to Banana Anna, a classic GPK card depicting an anthropomorphic banana with a bite taken out of its head. So, he took a photo of it and used it to mock up a card, trying his best to re-create the original composition. He then pitched it to Topps. "Just thinking it was a goofy thing," he wrote BB in an email.
They were very interested and asked if I could produce more. I submitted about 25 ideas. The project evolved a bit over a few months and it was decided to just stick to foods and call it GPK Kitchen. I arranged all the food, (made guts using Monster Clay) photographed them, then went to work on them in Photoshop.
Packs of these sticker cards are available to buy now ($20), but only for a few days — get'em while they're hot!
P.S. If you're a fan of GPK, go watch this documentary STAT: 30 Years of Garbage: The Garbage Pail Kids Story.

Three adults dug out their childhood Yu-Gi-Oh! card collection for an expert appraisal, and all were surprised, albeit one unpleasantly so.
The fine folks at MTG Manager have one of the favorite apps for fans of the game. Now they are toying around with an AR option that could display information about each card and possibly animate the images. This concept video of what it might look like live is pretty neat!

Now that the initial furor and shortages have subsided, it’s probably not a bad time to start considering your long-term cleaning and disinfecting plans.
