(insert clever Stephen King pun here)

Stephen King's Breakfast...
Chances are that, at some stage in your life, you've a made a 'face' with a meal. Whether you were a kid, or you've cooked a meal for a kid and tried to make it look 'fun', or even if you're like me and you have the brain of a six year old, you might have re-arranged the sausages to make a smile, moved the beans to make hair, shifted the tomatoes or eggs to make eyes, or used the bacon slices to make a moustache or mutton chops for Mr Plate Face. I can imagine (perhaps incorrectly) Stephen King going downstairs in the morning to have his breakfast, making a face out of his meal, and then coming up with a terrifying story based on it. Maybe it would be called 'Mr. Plate Face' and would be about a monster that turns children's faces into plates if they don't eat up their dinner, I don't know. Anyway, that rather odd trail of food faces and Stephen King's knack for making normal things uncanny and supernatural brought me to this cartoon. An evil cloud of frying pan smoke with a breakfast face? Heck, it's no less improbable than a giant spider clown...

I have to admit, when I was drawing this I thought, "I'm not sure how funny this is: Chris is a big King fan so his opinion is going to be the benchmark for the success of this one." So I'm rather glad you like it!
