I am very happy to announce that the Pop Up Funk popup book I’ve been working on with Jim Mahfood for the past 6 months has been released and is available for purchase at PopUpFunk.com! Pop Up Funk is a limited edition popup art book of artist Jim Mahfood/Food One’s artwork converted into popup spreads.

 In addition, six completely new pages of artwork were created for the project, making Pop Up Funk a truly unique custom art piece. The book features some of Jim’s most well known artwork, from comic book covers like ‘Everybody Loves Tank Girl’, ‘Ask for Janice’ and ‘Carl, the Cat That Makes Peanut Butter Sandwiches’, to mixed mixed work such as ‘Pop Life’ and ‘Cupid’s Death’.

Making a popup book is something that I’ve had on my pipedream list for years, and it’s a great feeling to finally do it and hold it in my hands, especially after working on almost only web/digital work for so long. And there’s not a better artist to do this with than Jim, just figuring out how to deconstruct his art to do this is an insane idea itself, but we got it done. And I’m happy to add that it’s self published and made entirely in the USA.

Jim created new art for six of the ten popup pages in Pop Up Funk, ranging from redrawing parts of Carl to adding entirely new artwork as the backgrounds of well known work such as Pop Life and Cupid’s Death. In addition, six pages of entirely new artwork was created for Pop Up Funk: the front and back covers, and the inner front and back double spreads, all exclusive to Pop Up Funk!
