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.

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.

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.

Foods Arranged Neatly To Form Gradients of Color And Shape

wrightkitchen

There’s something very appealing about seeing foods arranged neatly. It gives us even more of the warms and fuzzies when the foods create patterns with color and shape.

Artist Brittany Wright is here to help, with her Instagram series #FoodGradients. The photos represent “a meticulous arrangement of similar food according to their graduating color tones.”

The result… a satisfying series for the obsessive compulsive, or anyone who appreciates a study in color and food porn. See more below and over at Wright’s Instagram series here.
