Round monochrome pancakes are so last year… Fancy illustrated pancakes are where it’s at. And, if you have a good non-stick pan and sick illustrating skills, you could have an awesome tiger pancake like this one.

Brought to us by imgur member SoNorthTheSunDoesntShine, there’s a handy step-by-step on how to do your own. Get yourself to art school first though.

The best part, considering that these are words applied to a coffee cup, Draper spells everything correctly. See more of his art here.

Food Faces Made From Restaurant Meals

Pasture

You play with your food… It’s OK, you’re amongst friends. Noah Scalin also wants you to know that it’s going to be alright, and has created a series of food faces.

Commissioned by Broad Appetit — a food and art festival in Richmond, Virginia — Scalin was asked to visit eight local restaurants and create the faces with whatever he was served.

So use the series as inspiration for your next table art… We encourage making faces at the table.

Starbucks Barista Illustrates Customer Names On Coffee Cups, Spells Them Correctly

coffee-cup-art

For the few times that Starbucks actually asks for your name to write on the cup, an embarrassing misspelling of your name is imminent.

London-based Starbucks barista, Gabriel Lafitte Nkweti, not only makes sure to spell your name correctly, but turns the names of his coffee customers into works of art.

The art is obviously not done while your latte is being made… Starbucks isn’t that slow. Nkweti takes in upwards of 40 hours to complete one piece of cup art — drawing inspiration from his patrons and various art forms. See more of his collection at his Facebook page.

Dad Draws Fun Illustrations On His Kids’ Lunch Bananas

2

We’ve covered our fair share of banana art and cool parents who like to make their kids’ lunch more interesting. Now, these two worlds collide with these fun banana illustrations.

Brought to us by Alex Feliciano, after being asked by his wife to simply write his kids’ names on their lunchbox banana, took it a few steps further. And, without puncturing the skin, the bananas won’t be a brown squishy mess by lunchtime. Nice work, dad.
