The Dead Good Kids were conceived during the autumn of 2007, whilst Martin was preparing the nursery for his first child. Martin wanted to create some interesting artwork for the baby’s room that was fun and cute, but also a reflected his own personal tastes.
Martin has created a fully formed world, which the characters from the series exist within. Each of the many characters from the series has a fully realised background story, and Martin has already written many stories about the Dead Good Kids exploits. The core idea of the Dead Good Kids is not to judge a book by its cover. The characters may look a little spooky, but they are sweet natured and thoughtful, and of course exceedingly stylish.
The Dead Good Kids are available in wide range of formats, including prints, limited editions, postcards, greetings cards & t-shirts, and there are many more products in pipeline. For more information please go to: http://www.deadgoodkids.com
