Because it's dreadfully boring, I don't really do copies of old work. (Doing mosaics can be boring to start with.) However a friend asked if I could produce a version of "Sugar Smacks" as a Christmas gift. The cereal box is from 1969. To me the collaboration of Sugar Smacks and Star Trek's Spock character is way over the top ridiculously awesome. While similar, "Sugar Smacks 2" features a different background than the original. It is based on a stunning fresco from the Villa Livia outside of Rome.
