OK, so, I wasn't going to post these because, well two reasons. One is because some of them are downright lame. The other is because I didn't want you all to know just how far gone I really am, lol. But, I am throwing caution to the wind in the interest of inspiring you to look at that ham sandwich you're eating in a whole new light, lol. I really want to see your freaky food creations. So here we go.
This is my first foray into the world of freaky food, the first step on the slippery slope.
Why does Bret have a goatee, you ask? I wonder the same thing, lol. I ask you all to notice a certain, er, phallic arrangement of the kiwis and banana. The funny thing is I noticed this pitfall early on and tried really hard to avoid this composition, but apparently my subconscious mind took over and well, there it is. Banana balls!
This is the only pic I could find of what was supposed to be pancakes (vmh!) - the finished picture had pancakes and and sliced kiwi on the plate, along with a cup of coffee and a pitcher of maple syrup, etc. It didn't work great because as you can see, the faces are too dark to be convincing as maple syrup. They look more like chocolate sauce. That's because real maple syrup is too runny to draw with (a word to the wise to all you aspiring foodies out there) so after much experimentation I ended up using molasses, in hopes I could lighten it up in photoshop, which alas I could not, at least not realistically.
