I can easily say Who Framed Roger Rabbit is one of the greatest movies of all time. I mean whats more amazing than animated characters mingling with real life people? I went crazy for it when I was a kid. I still get pretty pumped when I see animation fuse with real life objects.
Artist Alex Solis does amazing illustrations that are unique, fun and playful.
This series is called Stealing My Food
He also is doing a series called Famous Chunkies. He illustrates recognizable pop culture figures as little fatties. I like the consistency of this series but it also has a strong message.
Usually when unhealthy eating is discussed it tends to come off as preachy and a little annoying. I think Alex Solis raises awareness without it being too much to digest….(see what I did there?)
Even though they are simply adorable, it gives you a little food for thought. Some of these drawings make me think about cheeseburgers a little more than usual. Then it immediately makes me rethink eating that cheeseburger.
Ariel/Flounder/Sebastian from Little Mermaid
Link from Legend of Zelda
Ryu from Street Fighter
Darth Vader from Star Wars
The cool thing is that he experiments with different art styles and its never the same thing over and over. He constantly posts super entertaining stuff on Instagram @alexmdc
Real life Fruit Ninja
Pencil Death: A little morbid and a little cutie
I grew up playing Nintendo games. Some games were ridiculously hard to pass. I remember I used to get so mad trying to beat King Koopa. Even as an innocent little girl I would day dream of making koopa in a delectable turtle soup. And Ganon from Legend of Zelda…..that awful awful pig. These were the villains of my childhood.
Illustrator Jude Buffum created these 8bit butcher diagrams. These hilarious infographic charts satisfies the carnivore and nerdy side of me. Plus who hasent thought of seeing these monsters hacked up into bits…..8 BITS……
King Koopa aka Bowser-Mario Brothers
Where’s all your fire breathing abilities now?! Huh, jerk?
Ganon-The Legend of Zelda
Ganon’s lust for power can never be satisfied. Just as my love of Ocarina Steak can never be satisfied. Ganon was a jerk and should totally be eaten. I’m certain he would taste like pig or possibly like wild boar. This is what he gets for harming my beloved Link and Zelda.
Two little swimming foes-Mario Brothers
I would gladly eat them because I love sashimi and they were always little annoying punks anyway.
Chocobos- Final Fantasy
These are fast little birds that get you from place to place, which leads me to believe the meat would be a little on the tough side. This one is kinda sad because they were usually pretty cute and friendly little critters. But hey, I’m a sucker for chocobo nuggets.
Awww…poor poor Yoshi. But you know, he does eat some delicious fruits so that “tongue stew” must taste delightful. An adorable dino delicacy.
Maybe you shouldn’t have run off a cliff. Stupid…adorable Yoshi.
Jude recently was the illustrator for a cookbook called “Ultimate Dining Hall Hacks” where he created exploded diagrams for various recipes. I recently ordered this book and am excited to see it, especially because I’m a big fan of unique food art and also am a fan of cooking.
Check out his other work, most are in the 8bit style too which is super fun. I’m a sucker for anything nerdy like infographics, diagrams and charts. Jude really did some creative work here. Buy some of his stuff he is super nice and totally deserves some revenue. So get on it nerds!
Illustrator and character designer Jerrod Maruyama is creating some pretty amazing work. He’s drawing stuff in the style of kawaii (all things cute and adorable).
like this little TV Dinner
or this breakfast scene
Most pop culture icons are subject to his cute-ification. Breaking Bad, Hellboy, Star Wars and his most popular series, Disney characters. I know most of my art postings have been “food illustrations”, but my inner geek is dying to post my nerdy loves. You have been warned….
I am a HUGE Legend of Zelda fan.
Louie CK (fellow Hungarian BTW)
These Disney characters are cute enough for any adult but would be totally adorable in a nursery.
Chip and Dale
Because I cannot post all of his wonderful work you’ll have to take a look at his website yourself. The little geek inside me gets super giddy when I see his work. He really captures the spirit of Disney characters very well. I feel like all of his illustrations has a sweet kawaii feel that I like so very much but also maintains a minimalist vibe. All of his character design is very consistent. Something an obsessive collector (such as myself) goes crazy for. I mean who could say no to this little smiling spam. Awww….
(i have contacted the artist to use these photos, hes super nice so please buy his stuff!)
