These redone versions of the Starbucks mermaid come from redditor IHunt who got a little creative during his downtime at work. There’s Wolverine, Batgirl, and even a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle all created out of just the mermaid logo and a black marker.

When I think about donuts, I think about munching on a dozen Krispy Kremes while also hanging out in a pool full of rainbow sprinkles with Homer Simpson. But when artist Mike Mitchell thinks about donuts, well, he thinks about murderous little fried bits of dough that are going to use a battle axe to butcher all the donut-eaters in a 200-mile radius. Yeah… happy thoughts.

Check out some more of Mike Mitchell’s donut-related art after the break (Even Robocop can’t resist)…

Barista Michael Breach works the night shift, so during his ample down time he taught himself how to make some incredible latte works of art. There are a lot of wonderfully nerdy designs like the TARDIS and Jabba the Hutt, but he also takes requests and does beautiful portraits of his patrons.

Wow, doesn’t that cereal look tasty… wait… those are Lego swimming in turpentine. I’ll pass thank you.

Australian photographer T.Q. Lee likes to recreate his favorite dishes using non-edible items for his appropriately named series, “Inedible”. Lee told Mashable that, “[The] series is both a fun visual pun and a comment on the artificial nature of convenience food.” He used a variety of unusual and sometimes thought-provoking ingredients to make his dishes, including tire rubber, Lego bricks, hazardous chemicals, sponges and, yes, even his own urine. The photos are meant to mimic the kinds of food pics that pop up on billboards and on Instagram daily. “There certainly appears to be a growing objectification even fetishism surrounding food — the idea of shooting before you eat, has become almost a custom,” said Lee.

Check out some more fake food pics after the break…

Some moms put an extra treat or a little note into their child’s lunch to bring a smile to their face, but Nina Levy does one better. She creates beautiful works of napkin art with a very geeky vibe. Part of what makes these so good is that she mixes up the universes like Pikachu with a Portal gun, or Rocket Raccoon hanging out with Grumpy Cat.

See more examples of her work after the break.

Redditor AirmanElmo took a razor to a delicious green apple and created this creepy shrunken head. Once he made the cuts to create the basic face, he let it sit in the Las Vegas heat. After a week this is the result.

Keep this one in mind when Halloween rolls around and you want to scare the life out of the neighborhood kids.
