Famous People and Pop Culture Characters Made From Peanuts

Steve Casino is a ‘painter of nuts.’ And, rather than squandering his talent on walnut landscapes or abstract cashews, Casino puts it to use creating celebrity peanuts.

Casino hand-paints anyone from Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Lee, and Hulk… recreating the subject’s likeness to perfection, while adding equally disproportionate limbs. So much better then tacky walnuts.

Pangraph, A Spirograph For Pancakes

spirograph-pancakes

Why make boring round pancakes, when you can enjoy yummy math spirals? Nathan of Saipancakes is back with his brand of above-average flapjacks, and something called the Pangraph.

Inspired by the Spirograph, a toy originally released the 60s, Nathan constructed his own version of the contraption that would hold his pancake batter dispenser, and fit right over his pan.

The results are nothing short of awesome. And Pangraphcakes are much more satisfying than the multi-colored pen spirals that you created as a kid. Now we just need a spiraly thingy to apply the syrup.

Artist James Ostrer recently created a series of grotesque portraits titled Wotsit all about – covering models with various forms of junk food.

Presented as a commentary on the dangerous methods of mass food production and our sugar obsession, Osterer takes advantage of the vibrant artificial colors of various junk foods and candies to create very bright and creepy portraits. See more of the project here.

RIMG00101

Pringles cans… they’re not just for getting your hand stuck in them. Artist Akihiro Morohoshi uses the deadly hand traps as a base for his beautiful railway dioramas.

Only part of a series of railways set in ephemeral townscapes, Morohoshi also builds these extraordinary scenes upon gumball machines, matchboxes and electric guitars.

Creative director Dudi Ben Simon brings us a series of optical illusions using everyday objects and food items — coincidentally to recreate everyday objects and food items. How creatively meta.
