Produce Illusion, A Series of Desaturated and Monochromatic Fruit

produce-illusion

Stripping fruits of their natural color, artist Dewey Saunders and photographer Andre Rucker created Produce Illusion.

Saunders and Rucker’s choice to make the produce desaturated and monochromatic adds an interesting visual element — while the fruits remain easily recognizable by shape and texture.

They also toy with gravity, stacking these re-colored fruits into beautiful sculptures.

It’s comforting to know that if we ever wanted to print something the same exact color as our favorite food, it’s now possible. Artist Inka Mathew proves this, with Tiny PMS Match — perfectly matching food to a Pantone color swatch.

Now, we can stop going to the printer and asking for “blackberry,” or “yellow Skittle-color.” Check out more of the project below and over at Mathew’s Tumblr.

Coffee spills are gonna happen. So, why not make these unfortunate little accidents as adorable as possible?

Coffee Monsters, by German creative professional Stefan Kuhnigk, sees the potential in these brown splotches. After some pencil to paper, Stefan turns coffee spills into adorable little creatures.

Although Stefan’s first spill was an accident that he made the best of, we assume that the 300 Coffee Monsters that followed were done on purpose. Check out more below and over at Kuhnigk’s Instagram.

If McDonald’s Made Happy Meals For Adults

As we get older, the only reason we seem to get jealous of little kids, besides their boundless energy, is that they still get to order McDonald’s Happy Meals.

But what if Mickey Ds cared about adults, as much it caters to impressionable kids? The result is a fun fictional series by Buzzfeed, where they illustrated a series of Adult Happy Meals.

Although, we’d have to question the existence of a McWine, it does come in a convenient carrying box. Check out more below and over at Buzzfeed.
