Fast Food, Scanned

10

To help remind us of how awful fast food can be, photographer Jon Feinstein pressed some up against glass and scanned them in. The results of the series, titled Fast Food, are nothing short of gag-inducing.

Titles of the photos range from, “39 Grams,” to “42 Grams,” referring to the amount of fat in each food. Please try to enjoy lunch.

Portraits Painted With Coffee on Antique Ledger Paper

coffee-3

Coffee, besides helping us feel less rage in the morning, has become a great art medium. Now, artist Michael Aaron Williams has taken coffee art a bit further by going old-school — with a series of portraits painted on ledger paper that dates back to the 1920s and 30s.

The weathered paper adds the perfect backdrop to the brown, amber and copper hues of the coffee, while Williams’ partial portraits complete the antique feel. See more of Williams’ work at his Facebook page.

Adorable Kids’ Meals by Samantha Lee

1

Here we go again, encouraging you to play with your food. But this series of kids’ meals by Samantha Lee is way too awesome and adorable to pass up.

The meals were originally created as a fun way to get her daughter to eat — even if the poor girl had to bite the heads off of characters such as Snoopy and Batman. The series has since spawned one of the more popular Instagram accounts of its kind, with over 224,000 followers. See more from Lee’s awesome project here.

Street Art Featuring Potatoes Wearing Pink Sunglasses

Potatoes wearing sunglasses… Now we’ve seen everything. But these aren’t your ordinary spuds in pink Ray-Ban knock-offs — it’s a series of street art. Brought to us naturally by an artist named Peter Pink, the shaded taters can be seen throughout Berlin.

With Pink’s art usually focused on the issue of obesity and fast food, the installations can sometimes be found protesting outside of a McDonald’s, pink picket signs and all. See more here.
