Anatomical Illustrations Created With Fruits and Vegetables


For anyone looking for a new appreciation of the human form and produce… look no further than these works by illustrator Dan Cretu.

Taking inspiration from vintage anatomy illustrations, Cretu uses the texture and form of fruits and vegetables to create musculature.

The result may inspire the viewer to look at the human form a bit differently, or make you want a salad.

Peaches Wearing Panties Exist And Are For Sale In China


It’s an inescapable fact that peaches look like butts. To help perpetuate this, a certified-awesome fruit vendor in China slipped some sexy undies on the fuzzy fruits.

The pantie-clad peaches are being sold to help celebrate Qixi Festival — China’s version of Valentine’s Day. How romantic.

Inglorious Fruits and Vegetables, An Initiative That Encourages Sales of Ugly Produce


Poor fruits and vegetables… Why you so ugly? 

It’s no secret that we shop with our eyes. And, because we can be so superficial, especially when it comes to produce, food waste has become a global issue.

Intermarché recently launched Inglorious Fruits and Vegetables to help change our perspective on unfortunate-looking produce, and hopefully cut down on food waste in the process.

First, a produce section was populated with the Grotesque Apple, Ridiculous Potato, Hideous Orange, Failed Lemon, Disfigured Eggplant, Ugly Carrot, and the Unfortunate Clementine at a discounted price. And, when that wasn’t enough to sway our flippant shoppers, a line of soups and juices made with these deformed foods were offered.

The result helped empty the shelves of these fruits and veggies, that may have been hard on the eyes, but will be nice to your belly and wallet. Hideous Orange Juice, anyone?

Veg of The Day, A Beautiful Papercraft Series of Fruits and Vegetables


Veg of the Day — an awesome papercraft series by artist Polly Lindsay — is certainly nice enough when viewing straight-on. However, it isn’t until we catch a side view, that we realize what makes this project special.

Using layers of paper to recreate the intricacies of actual produce, they’re then spaced apart and tiered. This technique helps add soft shadows and depth to the minimalist food items. Finally, vegetables are interesting.
