Fun Food Art

I stumbled upon this website featuring the “United Plates of America”, a really unique series of prints by 24-year-old artist John Wayne Holcomb. By taking the outline of each state and depicting it as the food or food-related item he found it most resembles, he created a collection that makes me smile. These would make for great kitchen decor- I just wish my favorites held some sort of meaning or connection to me. People might find it a bit odd if I had Connecticut hanging on my wall.

Here are a few of my favorites:

My sister lives there, but I’m not sure that’s a good enough
reason to hang it in my kitchen


Have I mentioned that I love peas?


Cheerios are just so cute!


Who doesn’t have fun with spaghetti and meatballs?


Do you think this would scare off my dinner guests?

Click here to read the story behind the series and here to find your state or just peruse all 51 posters. I guarantee you’ll find something that will make you smile. (be sure you read the artist’s comments below each framed art piece – especially Rhode Island and Hawaii!)
