Will Letter For Lunch, Artist Creates Hand-Lettered Menus In Exchange For Meals

1

We all work for food… however NYC-based artist Lauren Hom cuts out the unnecessary steps of getting handed a check, standing in line at the bank, and then exchanging money for goods.

Hom, creator of Will Letter For Lunch, offers her service as a graphic artist in exchange for meals. The concept is simple… Hom creates handwritten menus for restaurants in New York City, and her payment is whatever she writes on the board.

“Grilled Whole Fish” on the menu? Then you can expect Hom to be dining on said fish shortly. Considering how much a beautifully-lettered menu classes up a joint, this bartering system seems more than fair. Especially if Hom designs a few Happy Hour menus. See how it all works here.

This Artist’s Take on Happy Meals Is The Fast Food We Deserve

happy-meals-1

Happy Meals have been catered to little kids for far too long. And, we want our combo meal with included toy!

Artist Newt Clements has come up with a series of Happy Meals that is a bit more adult. From The Big Lebowski, Breaking Bad, and a plethora of horror movie Happy Meals… these themes would surely be too much for a youngster to handle. But honestly… Are they any scarier than this guy?

See the entire Happy Meals series on Pinterest.
