Breakfast wouldn't be the same without the realistic touch of Guillermo Fajardo. Revamped with an eerily creepy twist, these breakfast cereals are never going to be the same again.

The graphic artist always wanted to bring the breakfast mascots to life. In this reimagined series titled Breakfast Time, characters like Captain Crunch, Tony the Tiger, Count Chocula and the Trix Rabbit have been transformed into lifelike monsters. Fajardo explains that these reinventions were inspired by his "new sarcastic and adult vision," which results in a mashup of morbid cynicism. The famous Count sadistically mixes his cocoa goodness with succulent blood while Tony looks like he's been on steroids. The talented artist depicts nostalgic child favorites with a semi-demonic touch, turning the innocent characters into seemingly delectable monstrous eats.
