I would love to read this book to my kids, unfortunately creating this image in GIMP just about taxed my artistic abilities.
…And this is my own first attempt at creating the Family Circus+Lovecraft mashup. As you may be able to tell, I had some difficulty matching the font so in the end I decided not to try. The font I used is Bohemian Typewriter designed by Lukas Krakora. I like it so much that I use it on my business cards.
I like the quote I chose, which is from “Dagon” by Lovecraft. But since this is my first attempt I am not entirely sure it works. I also came up with the alternative comic name Foetid Crocus to replace Family Circus.
