Two works of classic American art — Andy Warhol’s iconic Campbell’s soup cans and Converse canvas footwear — recently joined forces to create Converse Campbell’s Sneakers.

Teaming up with the Andy Warhol Foundation, Converse is offering the soup shoes in Tomato, Black Bean, and Vegetable — as well as a collage of soup cans and other works from Warhol.

So, if you’re a fan of Warhol, soup, vintage kicks, or all of the above… the Converse Campbell’s Sneakers go on sale February 7. A portion of the sales will go to the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Check them out here.

If only brands could be honest with consumers, instead of feeding us their advertising gobbledygook, we’d have something like Honest Slogans.

Brought to us by graphic artist, Clif Dickens, this new round of ads provide some refreshing honesty on some of the things we consume.

Although, we don’t care how tired mom is… Hamburger Helper ain’t happening.

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.
