June 23, 2017: Q&A With Munchkin Spell Skool Artist Katie Cook! (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/a/2017-06-23)

http://www.sjgames.com/img/newsq/illq/2017/food-fighters.png (http://www.sjgames.com/img/newsq/illq/2017/food-fighters.png) To celebrate the release of Munchkin Spell Skool (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/spellskool/), exclusively at Walgreens (https://www.walgreens.com/storelocator/find.jsp)*(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 (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/lovesharkbaby/), Munchkin Puppies (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/puppies/), Munchkin Cthulhu (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/guestartists/cthulhu-cook/) Guest Artist Edition (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/guestartists/cthulhu-cook/), Munchkin Oz (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/guestartists/oz-cook/) Guest Artist Edition (http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/guestartists/oz-cook/). 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.*

* * *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.*

*
* * *I am a mom. I am all-knowing and all-seeing.*
