Baymax and Grumpy Cat

There are few things that can help make a brown bag lunch the coolest part of a kid’s day. Awesome napkin illustrations of cats and robots appear to be one of those things.

After some time illustrating random pop culture characters and inspirational messages on her sons’ lunch napkins, Mom/artist Nina Levy has refocused her attention on internet-famous cats and robots.

Baymax and Grumpy Cat, R2-D2 and Limecat are just a few of these unusual duos that help make lunch awesomer. See more below.

Food For Thought, Books Packaged As Canned Food

food-for-thought-books-02

The problem with most books, besides all of the big words and lack of pictures, is that they’re never packaged to look like food. Designer, Maria Mordvintseva-Keeler, is here to help change that.

Food For Thought is a design concept that rethinks ordinary linear books, by packaging them in food cans. Three food-themed books — Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Naked Lunch and Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant — also include elements of the book plot illustrated on the can. Finally, pretty pictures to look at.

Making a Bloody Mary from scratch is hard… Especially when we’re on number six or seven, or trying to make one as our morning remedy.

The Bloody Mary Diagram Glass is here to help. Created by artist Alyson Thomas, the set includes two glasses displaying Thomas’ original artwork and all the ingredients you’ll need.

Keeping the party going, or self-medicating the morning after, has never been more stylish.

Coffee Stain Motorcycle Illustrations

coffee-1

Coffee stains have been known to ruin perfectly good tables, and some of the doodles we worked on so hard at that staff meeting. However, sometimes the ring stains are purposely placed on paper, and used for actual works of art.

Coffee Stain Motorcycles is a series by illustrator Carter Asmann. Coffee stain rings act as wheels, while the motorcycle is then carefully illustrated around them. Try a few of your own at that next boring meeting… or you can just check out more works by Asmann here.

BrunchCity, Miniature Cities Placed On The Foods That Best Represent Them

Madrid

Madrid

Brought to us by illustrator Bea Crespo and photographer Andrea G.Portoles, BrunchCity is a fun project that places a miniature illustrated version of a city atop a food that best represents it.

A beautiful miniature Tokyo sits on a roll of sushi, while a croissant creates an appropriate landscape for Paris.

The project is the result of a few things that the duo enjoys the most… food, travelling, illustrations, photos and creativity. Check out the series below and over at BrunchCity to see if your favorite city received the food treatment.
