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.

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.

heads

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.

These incredible burger creations were dreamed up by French graphic designers Quentin and Thomas as part of an ongoing project called Fat & Furious Burger. Burgers range from this crab-legged monstrosity to a much less frightening Halloween pumpkin to an homage to the famous sword in the stone.

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.
