Pizza and parties go hand in hand. Crazy fun to eat and as far as food goes its pretty damn interesting to look at. Basic shapes, colorful toppings and of course drippy melty cheese. Pizza could be an illustrators dream come true . Doodling little pizzas sound like a good time to me.
Japanese artist Kimiaki Yaegashi a.k.a. Okimi, created a series featuring pizza. These paintings also have a hot chick wearing a bikini, a naked baby, a cat, a bird/turtle/fish man and a Tengu. In Japanese folk culture the Tengu is a legendary mountain goblin that often represents vanity and pride. There’s a Japanese expression, ‘Tengu ni naru,’ which means, ‘He’s turning into a Tengu,’ used when describing a person who is arrogant, proud or conceited.
Now, the meaning of all these characters (including the pizza) on each of these drawings is up to you. These make me so happy, I cant help but giggle. They are abstract, wacky and beautiful.
A slice of pizza in your underpants? On your boobies? Over your eyes? What about putting your head through it?
