Artist Creates Fake Coffee Brands That We Wish Existed

6

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.

How A Bean Becomes A Fart, In Cute Animation Form

1

Sure, the reason why beans make us fart is very scientific. But, lucky for us, the creative folks at Giant Ant have explained it in terms we can all understand, via an adorable animation.

How A Bean Becomes A Fart starts at the very beginning, and takes us on the bean’s entire journey through the eater — inevitably winding up in gaseous form.

Now… Is there a cartoon to help explain why the silent ones are indeed the deadliest?

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?

Gastro-Architecture, A Fun Illustration Series of Buildings That Look Like Food

5

When you start seeing architecture as food, either it’s time for lunch, or you’re the creator of Gastro-Architecture.

Illustrator and art director of The New York Times Book ReviewNicholas Blechman, sees architecture as edible or as a food tool, and he’s got the adorable cartoon series to prove it.

Whether it’s the Fifth Avenue Apple Store as an ice cube, or the Cathedral of Brasilia as a crown roast, the playful series will have you looking at buildings in an entirely different way. Except art deco… very unappetizing.

Anatomical Illustrations Created With Fruits and Vegetables

1

For anyone looking for a new appreciation of the human form and produce… look no further than these works by illustrator Dan Cretu.

Taking inspiration from vintage anatomy illustrations, Cretu uses the texture and form of fruits and vegetables to create musculature.

The result may inspire the viewer to look at the human form a bit differently, or make you want a salad.
