EYE POPPING POP ART.

Pop art has always been a style of art I’ve admired.  Roy Lichenstein, Andy Warhol and Wayne Thiebaud are a few of my favorite artists of all time.  Bright colors, recognizable imagery drawn from popular media and products.  This style of art is a wonderful way to show whats going on in the world we live in.

Grégoire Guillemin, aka “Léon”, is a leader in the “Geek Art” movement.  His work celebrates science fiction, comic books, video games and pop culture icons. Consumerism, lust, gluttony and vanity are things that are explored in Léon work.  His artworks rediscover and reinvent styles through experimentation and a clean minimalist approach.

These pieces are so relevant to our generation.  The series “The Secret Life of Heroes” is just one of his mind blowing series is a that is a hilarious inside look at the hidden, colorful and slightly steamy, life of our most beloved heroes.  So called ‘innocent’ childhood favorites smoking cigarettes, taking selfies with Iphones, picking their nose, holding a gun and groping one another?  So rad!  I mean there’s nothing hotter than Superman eating a cheeseburger.  Mmmm yummy.

MY PSYCHEDELIC DREAM.

Brooklyn based illustrator Leslie A. Wood uses shapes, colors and beautiful rhythmic patterns in a way that can surely brighten your day.  These designs have been made into adorable greeting cards and unique wrapping paper.

These illustrations are imaginative and look like a lovely psychedelic dream.  Giant food you can hug, fast food repeating itself, swimming with abstract fishes, a giant walking cookie and looking into a crystal ball made of sprinkles.  This is the kind of visions a foodie has while on LSD.

PLAY ON WORDS PLAY WITH MY HEART.

Greek artist and t-shirt designer Teo Zirinis is the clever mind behind HandsOffMyDinosaur!
His art has a great blend of puns, pop culture references and whimsy.
Whether its inanimate objects doing something silly, a play on words or your favorite character doing something out of character all of his work is great fun.

Pizzas have scary tales to tell around a campfire too.

I’m not sure if I’ll ever look at gumball machines the same again.

The Iron Fry Throne.  Only the one true cheeseburger may rule the seven kingdoms.

Dhalsim brings the heat to this ‘Street Barbecue’.  We all knew E. Honda would come to the party, being a heavy man that enjoys a steak or two.  I’m happy Zangief could make the party as well.

“To be, or not to be:  that is the question.”  What else can Skeletor do at Castle Grayskull besides read tons of Shakespeare?

What about Ring Kong?  This play on words is so simple and amazing.  I wonder if Peter Jackson would be down to throw a quick film together.  I would so be there!

P IS FOR PIZZA

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?

Genius.

MOUTH MURDERS.

There are certain types of foods that merely exist to destroy your mouth.
There are the evil foods that cut the roof of your mouth and there are the bastards that burn the shit out of your tongue.
Both classes of foods are equally as demonic and delicious.
Sometimes you forget how much damage these foods do because but we partake anyway.
I’m sure we CAN wait a few minutes to let things cool down, but I’m hungry NOW!
Plus, I’m sure its fine, right?
Are we masochists? Cocky? Idiots?
As a seasoned eater of foods and drinker of hot beverages I think I have a technique for all food and drinks. But my eagerness and hunger always proves to be my demise.

Burning your tongue via Pizza is an easy road to pain. Pizza looks so innocent, but underneath that delicious cheese sheet lies a hot steamy devil.
Cutting the roof of your mouth really sucks because if you get it good enough you can taste a hint of blood. Mmmm. Yuck.
Thanks Captain Crunch!

Crispy bread can be a sonofabitch. Please proceed with caution when eating a ciabatta sandwich. These sandwiches are quite treacherous.
Right when you get your hands on a crispy sandwich you know what you’re in for.
Get ready to go for a ride!
There’s no right way to bite into it and NOT injure yourself.
You gotta dedicate. Think of it as “extreme” eating.
So relax and take a moment to think about the next few days.
Do you need your taste buds?
Are you comfortable having a tore up mouth?
More than likely you can practice a bit of patience or try not to order the crunchiest piece of bread. Sip your coffee or blow on your soup. Lets all try and be responsible adults.
