These beautiful landscapes are the work of artist Hasan Kale. He’s a talented artist who paints scenes from his native city of Istanbul, Turkey onto absurdly small pieces of food. His creations include entire landscapes on a single M&M, part of a peanut shell, and even one small slice of banana. The level of detail in these is amazing.

food and comics paintings 1

If you take a quick glance at the image above and didn’t read the title of this post closely, you probably wouldn’t guess it’s an oil painting. This incredible photorealistic art is the work of Doug Bloodworth, and it hurts my head to think about how much time he spends creating images like this. Apparently, he works with grids and can spend more than two months on each painting.

One of Bloodworth’s series is focused on comics and snacks. He recreates the covers of the comics in perfect detail, and he makes the food look so real that it makes me hungry. The images also make me feel a little anxious because who would put cookies and potato chips on top of their comics?!

This Tea-Rex started out life as a simple teapot. A little customization by Neokentin has turned it into something amazing. This sculpture now barely resembles its former self with just a few bits in the design revealing its original life as a tea pot. You can imagine this as a vehicle in some sort of steampunk novel, coming in at the last moment to save the day.

Artist Daryna Kossar makes delightful images (some of them delightfully nerdy) using nothing but food as her medium. She uses all kinds of foods from blueberries to bread to sugar cubes to make her artwork and she’s even created a video demonstrating how she puts her images together by creating an adorable Mario.

Gabriel Nkweti Lafitte, a Starbucks barista, transforms average Starbucks cups into brilliant works of art. He creates these intricately designed illustrations for people he’s served during his spare time. His cups are on display inside the Starbucks near the British Museum in London, and he receives daily requests from fans. Amazingly, his pieces sometimes take up to 40 hours to finish. In regards to why he does it, he told Metro: “I love seeing people’s reaction to my drawings. I enjoy the joy and surprise on their faces.”

Check out some more pics of his cups after the break…

nature valley anime

When the person behind a company Twitter handle knows how to do their job and is allowed to pick up the ball and run with it, glorious things can happen.

Like, for instance, what happened with Nature Valley (yes, the granola bar people) and the creation of the Nature Valley Anime Art Fest. This is an example of social media done right.

It all started with one tweet.

Which got this reply from Jess Wangsness, the community engagement specialist for Nature Valley.

Just one person replying to someone on Twitter in a kind, friendly way and taking a moment to say something nice. Still, it’s not something you usually see from, say, a granola bar Twitter feed.

When people picked up on Nature Valley talking about anime, they decided to tweet and Jess engaged. The cool thing is, she never pretended to know something she didn’t and she had enough knowledge to discuss the subject. She just chatted, keeping it in line with the company, but having fun and being positive.

One thing led to another and the next thing you know people are sending in anime art featuring Nature Valley granola bars. The Nature Valley Anime Art Fest was born. See some of the results after the break…

They’re designs created by chocolate maker Unelefante who puts as much of a focus on artistry as they do quality. You can purchase them directly from their site in packs of three.
