June 23, 2017: Q&A With Munchkin Spell Skool Artist Katie Cook!

Food Fighters To celebrate the release of Munchkin Spell Skool, exclusively at Walgreens (hitting stores in the next week or so, so swing by your local Walgreens to pick up a copy, before they disappear), we sat down with Katie Cook and asked her a few questions about the game, her thoughts on magic, and her favorites from the set!
You've done a lot of work on Munchkin sets now – Munchkin Love Shark Baby, Munchkin Puppies, Munchkin Cthulhu Guest Artist Edition, Munchkin Oz Guest Artist Edition. Did you approach Munchkin Spell Skool any differently?
    I try to approach everything I do with a sense of humor and enthusiasm . . . the Munchkin stuff especially so. These sets are such a blast to work on. 
As you know, players in this Munchkin game are young students at a magic school. Did that theme inspire you? How?  
    I guess you could say I am a fan of a certain series of books about students at a magic school. 

Barf GolemWhich was your favorite card to draw for Munchkin Spell Skool?

     Maybe the Food Fighters? Eggs-and-bacon food-fight face is a classic. 
Was there a card or cards that gave you trouble in this set?
     I think I drew a few things that were made of barf in this set . . . yet had to make it cute. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. 
Was there a card you thought was the funniest or the punniest?
     The Rap-Scallions cracked me up. (Editor's note: They crack me up, too. -HS) 
Do you believe in magic?
     If you don't believe in magic, the world gets to be pretty boring. 
Rap Scallions Do you have secret magical abilities? 
     I am a mom. I am all-knowing and all-seeing. 
How are your other projects? Anything upcoming that fans should look for?
    I've been illustrating some Star Wars books for Disney/Lucasfilm Press: ABC-3PO and Obi-123!
Where can fans find you on the web? 
     I'm katiecandraw on all the social media: Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Wordpress, and Facebook
