Illustrations Finished With Well-Placed Food Items

mensa-1

Why finish an illustration with boring ink, when there are perfectly good foodstuffs that’ll really help tie that drawing together?

Artist Kristián Mensa, a.k.a. mr. kriss, uses food and other everyday objects in his illustrations. Whether it’s rigatoni as a ship’s smokestack or spaghetti as guitar strings, Mensa’s illustrations are a great way to combine ink and edibles.

Panoramic Coffee Cup Art

panoramic-coffee-cup

We’ve certainly seen our share of coffee cup art. The often stark white drinking vessels have become a blank canvas for brilliant typography, comic strips, and have even gone 3-D.

Tokyo-based artist Adrian Hogan is now taking the medium panoramic, with an Instagram video series. Hogan illustrates a scene on a cup, then takes us through his surroundings with a slow twist. Check out more below and over at Instagram.

Choclatomy, Chocolates Paired With Anatomy Illustrations

choclatomy-7

Hey, you got chocolate in my anatomy! Pakistan-based illustrator Asma Javeri created Choclatomy — a series of human anatomy illustrations paired with delicious chocolates and truffles.

Now, one might ask what a KitKat has to do with a rib cage, or a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup with a foot. It doesn’t matter… the series is aesthetically pleasing enough, that we’ve decided that chocolate and anatomy now goes together like chocolate and peanut butter. So there.

Illustrations of Food and Animals That The Artist Interacts With

What fun are illustrations of food and hungry animals, if you don’t feel as though you could reach out and touch them? Malaysian artist Christie Tan is helping to do just that, with an Instagram series of food and animals.

To help take her already awesome illustrations of a food item and an animal a step further, Tan uses creative paper cuts and her own interaction with the drawings, to help bring them to life.

You can see more of Tan’s work below and over at Instagram.
