Rough Concept Drawing
The composition of David Gross's "Ghoul Whip" rough sketch is the same as the eventual painting. However, at this stage "BOO!" takes the place of the KRAFT logo, and much of the piece's wordplay has yet to be added.
|Final Painting (Before Revision)
In his first pass on the "Ghoul Whip" painting, Gross replaced the "BOO!" logo with "KRYPT", a closer approximation of KRAFT. Topps consulting editor Len Brown reviewed the piece and suggested adding a man in a coffin on the lid of the product. Gross pointed out that the imagery had already been used on "Mr. Coffin" in ANS1, so that idea was dropped. Brown also recommended including more jokes.
|Final Painting (Revised)
Gross revised the final painting to add the lines "So Good It's Scary" and "DEAD WT: 8oz."
The Topps Vault sold the finished art for "Ghoul Whip" for $2,950.00 in an eBay auction which ran from October 16 - 23, 2005.
