Artist James Ostrer recently created a series of grotesque portraits titled Wotsit all about – covering models with various forms of junk food.

Presented as a commentary on the dangerous methods of mass food production and our sugar obsession, Osterer takes advantage of the vibrant artificial colors of various junk foods and candies to create very bright and creepy portraits. See more of the project here.

Fat & Furious Burger Makes Beautiful Quirky Burger Sculptures

furious-burger

French designers Thomas and Quentin create art out of burgers. However, they’re not the high-end fancy-schmancy restaurant burgers that appear to be all the rage. The creative duo behind Fat & Furious Burger creates quirky photographs with a burger as the main subject.

Again, these are not your average burgers, as they’re usually transformed into other objects, or given some legs to become something like Crabzilla. Either way, Thomas and Quentin swear that, regardless of the methods and materials used, the burgers in their work remain edible.

That’s good, because we’re gonna need that sushi burger in our belly, pronto.

Honest Names For Food Tell It Like It Is

enhanced-20195-1403630227-13Although they’re longer and a little harder to remember than the original, Honest Names For Food by Buzzfeed tell it like it is.

The brutal truth is that English muffins are nothing but “Butter Sponges.” And, let’s be honest, waffles are merely “Pancakes With Crannies.” Or, are pancakes “Flat-Ass Waffles?” Now we’re just confused.
