coffee panorama

These coffee cup sketches are the work of Tokyo-based illustrator Adrian Hogan. He draws panoramic views that cover the whole coffee cup. The images are beautiful, but when he holds them up and pans across the real-life inspiration for each image, it’s incredible.

Shay Aaron specializes in miniature art. Based in Tel Aviv, Aaron loves to create amazingly detailed pieces of miniature food art, which he sells as either stand-alone pieces or as jewelry in his Etsy store. Each piece is crafted from polymer clay (usually in 1:12 scale), and he uses a host of miniature tools to get the job done, including sewing needles and tiny tweezers.

Spanish architects Marta Alonso Yebra and Imanol Calderón Elósegui of the MAYICE design studio have repurposed gummy bears as colorful, and nicely scented, light boxes by separating them out by color and melting them down to create “gelatinous paint”.

The result is mini works of modern art – additional examples of which can be seen after the jump. There’s also a video of the process in action.

Brittany Wright of Wright Kitchen loves the colors that can be found in food. The photographer decided to document the way foods change color as they ripen or cook by arranging them all in stunning color gradients. The results are beautiful pieces of art that are very satisfying in a OCD-ish kind of way.

Artist Noah Scalin of Richmond, Virginia has taken his artistic talents and applied them to a unique medium. He made portraits of Twin Peaks characters using nothing but cherry pie filling. It sounds slightly less weird when you realize that he often uses odd materials like broken vinyl records and coffee beans to create his works of art.

This series includes Agent Dale Cooper, Laura Palmer, Audrey Horne, and Little Man. They are on display as a part of The Great Southern Twin Peaks festival in Richmond and will also appear in Makeout Creek Magazine.

What you’re looking at is a fan tribute to Super Mario Bros. that is made entirely out of toothpicks. It was built by BB Korry who used 140,000 toothpicks, carefully stacked and held together with glue and colored with spray paint.

When all was said and done, took a total of five days to build at a cost of $100. Could there be a better use for time and money? Absolutely—but were glad that there are people out there driven to make stuff like this.

These lovely portraits feature characters like Daenerys Targaryen, Yoda, Mario, and The Little Mermaid. Though it looks like brown ink, it’s actually coffee that artist Maria A. Aristidou has applied to paper. She uses water paper and five different coffee blends to get the right shading. Who says you shouldn’t play with your food?
