Everyone must choose one of the two pains:
The pain of discipline or the pain of regret.

Maps made from real food

 

You’ve got to see this.

Longtime collaborators photographer Henry Hargreaves and food stylist Caitlin Levin joined forces in a fascinating illustration of different parts of the country … using the respective region’s signature foods.

… and it’s all corns in the United States.


 

Just look at the beautiful shrimps fof Australia, or the citrus fruits of South America.

Sharing their passion for all things food and travel, they’ve been using food as a medium to convey that love across their projects, including entire series of artworks based on eggs, gingerbread, as well as Oreo cookies.

Now that’s one idea to cook up in my own head.

 

P.S. Speaking of edible mediums, check out the girl who gets creative with coffee cup stains. For Pete’s sake, she drew Jay Chou.

Awesomeness: Annie Leibovitz got A-list celebs to portray famous Disney scenes

 

You’ve probably seen some of these stunning images around, but I’ve only seen it recently (FOMO alert).

Celebrated photographer Annie Leibovitz is the miracle-worker behind the Disney Dream Portraits series, an ad campaign that is famed for featuring household celebrities dressed up as Disney characters.

The original batch of photos was first out in January 2007 in honor of Disney Parks‘ “Year of a Million Dreams” promo, but because the project was so much fun (blatantly so), Leibovitz continued to produce her incredible photo-manipulated portraits up to this day, with the latest one spotlighting Golden Globes award-winning actress Jessica Chastain, who was posing as Merida from Brave (2012).

Take a look at the complete collection of the series so far:
