It was bound to happen. The world's largest soup company, Campbell's, is set to release (at Target no less) limited-edition Andy Warhol inspired soup cans to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Warhol's infamous Campbell's soup can art. Warhols' seminal 32 Campbell's Soup Cans remains his most iconic work, and while you go to buy bulk product remanufactured as hip mass commercialism (Target), you can have a slice of... limited-editioned soup. Use only in earthquake emergencies.

Look, we often show photorealism on this site, we know that, we enjoy the skill involved. That said, we passed over Doug Bloodworth's this morning, and thought it was just a well-executed photo of a Spider-Man comic with Oreo cookies strewn on top. No, this is an oil painting, and its really, really well-done.

We can only assume that Italian muralist, Blu, is a healthy man with a good juicer. For the DesordesCreativas festival in Ordes, Spain, Blu painted this odd to healthy eating and vegetarian lifestyle. Thousands of veggies and fruits, all getting ready, excited, to jump into the blender of life. A good smoothie is born.

Perhaps because it is Friday during a holiday week, and we are slightly hungry, that these photographs of food as everyday objects have us hungry and happy. Dan Cretu has turned a piece of salami, and cucumber, an orange, and a view other fruits and vegetables into things that you would use at a picnic; cameras, boomboxes, and bicycles.

The simple idea; reimagine food as fashion. Fulvio Bonavia had a fantastic book, A Matter of Taste, that was released a few years ago, featuring photography of food as fashion pieces. Rasberrry bags, sardine belts, and artichoke hats could possibly be one day, high fashion.

We really wanted to wait until Halloween on this one, but we just couldn't resist. Sure, you can eat your pancakes and eggs in their "normal" circular form, but why not treat the kids to an egg in a pirate's skull and crossbones style? How cool is this? Even if you don't like skulls, you have to appreciate this one...

Just another artist who used the natural oxidation process on banana skin to create art. Phil Hansen pierces a banana with a pin and then lets the skin oxidize. And this is the result... is it this simple? Why are wasting our bananas in our cereal? We prefer a greenish banana, but we would eat a masterpeice...

Brittney Meyer photographs food, and from what we've seen it's not exactly in the mode of Sunset Magazine. Instead, she captures food in odd moments of movement, frozen, collaged, misplaced, the fruit and sweets seem to be animated, personified, and almost giddy.

Maybe it is because we are in Sri Lanka and we have eaten curry with each meal, but Mary Ellen Johnson's photorealistic paintings of sundaes, waffles, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, cherry pies and sticky buns are really making our mouth's water.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Amnesty International, Prague-based marketing team Euro RSCG created a campaign surrounding these "Dictator Cakes," cakes in the form of the busts of Cuba's Fidel Castro and Belarus' Alexander Lukashenko. Please take notice as to where the slice of cake has been removed . . .
