Cerealism, Breakfast Cereal as Beautiful Landscapes

Cheeramids #3 by Ernie Button

With some creative use of breakfast cereal and macro photography, artist Ernie Button brings us Cerealism. The photo series, often using kids’ cereals, arranges the various oat clusters, marbits, and shredded wheat to create realistic landscapes. And the series, above anything else, does something that was once considered impossible — to make Grape Nuts somewhat appealing.

Realistic Illustrations of Cereal Mascots

Breakfast just got real, with illustrations by artist Guillermo Fajardo. The series, officially titled Breakfast Time, depicts some of our favorite breakfast cereal mascots as if they existed in the real world. No longer do we see the colorful and adorable Tony the Tiger or Count Chocula — Fajardo gives the mascots a morbid sense of realism. Show these to the kids, and perhaps it will scare them into trying some oatmeal or fruit for breakfast.

Breakfast Cereal Big Bird

If Presidential candidate Mitt Romney gets his way, there will no longer be a subsidy to the Public Broadcasting System (PBS), and therefore no Sesame Street and Big Bird. Thankfully, mosaic artist Jason Mercier wants to keep the big yellow Sesame Street character’s spirit alive — just in case mean old Mitt kills him off. And, what better way to depict Big Bird than with an assortment of sugar-filled children’s breakfast cereal. Take that, bird killer.


Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cupcakes

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cupcakes are brought to us by BS In The Kitchen. Using one of the best and most tooth-decaying cereals of all-time — Cinnamon Toast Crunch — the cupcakes might just be enough to help make this never-ending food trend a bit more tolerable. Recipe here.

And, what could be better than Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cupcakes? How about Robot Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cupcakes?

Cereal Bowl Light

If you consider breakfast, more specifically Froot Loops, to be the most important meal of the day — then the Cereal Light will certainly be your most important lamp.

The concept is brought to us by ideaka. Although still only a prototype, the cereal bowl is activated by touching the spoon, allowing you to bask in the glow of milk and artificially-colored breakfast rings.
