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.

Charts About Brunch Tell a Painful Truth

brunch-chart

Brunch used to be just a fun way to consolidate two meals while nursing a hangover. Now, it’s clearly become an exercise in humans’ tolerance for each other, and is responsible for things like “bruncher’s remorse” and “tip guilt.”

Michelle Rial of The Bold Italic knows this, and has created Hand-Crafted Charts About Brunch — a handy series that shows us a few ways in which the meal in-between breakfast and lunch has become intolerable.

Now, where’s my overpriced Bloody Mary and designer omelette? Waitress!!

Artist Creates Fake Coffee Brands That We Wish Existed

Disposable coffee cups have become quite the canvas for inspired art. Now, Russian illustrator Illarion Gordon takes coffee cup art to another level, creating fictitious coffee brands, while toying with our caffeine-addicted minds.

Coffee shops such as Coffee Time and Atomic Coffee will surely have us skipping the little green mermaid. As long as they provide our soy lattes… can’t live without those.

See more of Gordon’s work over at Instagram.

Cereal Critters, A Series That Imagines Cereal Mascots As Action Figures

phil_postma_cereal_critters_3

If you grew up –like most — hooked on the kiddie crack that is kids’ breakfast cereal, then you probably consider cereal mascots your breakfast heroes. Unfortunately, after all these years, Frankenberry and Quisp were never given the honor of being encapsulated in a blister bubble.

Artist Phil Postma wants to change all of that, by providing a visual of what a cereal mascot would look like if packaged as an action figure. Cereal Critters is a series of illustrations provided by Postma, with our favorite breakfast spokesmen nestled safe in their bubble packaging.

Which cereal mascot would you want to play with first? Or, would you immediately want to form some sort of justice league with all of the cereal monsters?
