Take sips of coffee while getting a morning kiss. Korean designer, Jang Woo-Seok, has designed a disposable coffee cup lid with, not only the requisite sip-hole, but a nose and mouth.

No mention if the lids will actually be available for purchase. You can still kiss your coffee though. It’s OK… You’re amongst friends.

It’s probably on everyone’s wish list… To randomly stumble upon giant gummy bears that we can interact with.

Artist Leon Kerr has attempted to make it so, with Gummy Bear Street Art. Created for the Malta Street Art Festival, the gummies are brilliantly painted to scale, so that they’re best viewed from above. Do not try to eat.

Cereal Monsters Get Real In This Creepy Art Series

Cereal Monsters can be adorable, and all they want to do is endorse their delicious breakfast cereals. However, at the end of the day, Count Chocula, Frankenberry and Boo Berry are still monsters.

Artist Mike Burns got serious with these cereal peddlers, depicting them as actual creepy monsters. Prints of Count Chocula, Frankenberry, and Boo Berry can be found here. Sadly, we don’t get to see Fruit Brute howling at the moon. Now, we wait.

Spilled Coffee Art Is A Wonderful Accident

spilled-food-art-giulia-bernardelli-41

When you spill your coffee… Does it just look like, you know, a spill?

It’s OK, we can’t all be artists like Giulia Bernardelli, who sees spilled coffee as an opportunity. The best part is, her coffee paintings are done spontaneously, meaning that Giulia does not plan these ahead of time, and uses whatever means are available to draw with.

See more below and over at Instagram.

Ice Creams That Taste Like Color

color-collection

When viewing colors… Do you ever wonder what they might taste like? If you’re Jeni Britton Bauer, of NYC’s Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, you not only have this thought process, but you go ahead and create a line of ice creams that taste like color.

After being inspired by the cut-outs of Henri Matisse, the vibrant colors of the paper led Jeni to create the Color Collection.

Although there aren’t many blue foodstuffs in the world, Jeni manages to capture the flavor of Ultramarine Blue with wild blueberries, raspberry extract, and pineapple. Cadmium Yellow incorporates crushed whole lemons, bergamot and white grapefruit.

The result… a line of tangible and very delicious colors, that are themselves a work of art. And, I’d like to color my belly with them. Available here.
