ROYAL WEDDING = Portraits of Prince William and Kate Middleton

Pizza chain Papa John's has created an image of Prince William and Kate Middleton on a pizza. 
The chain worked with a food artist to create the pizza, the veil made from
mushrooms; dress from cheese; and William's suit out of salami and peppers.
.
Artist George Vlosich spent 125 hours creating this portrait on an Etch a Sketch.
.
A Staffordshire artist, Pete Mason has used thousands of postage stamps for his creation.
More than 3,000 recycled stamps were used to depict the couple. 
.
Using 11,000 jelly beans. Malcolm West from Surrey, spent up to ten hours a day 
over a period of more than five weeks painstakingly sticking each bean on to his creation.
..
Last but not least...
by yours truly! Using good ol' charcoal+crayon!
.

You did that with crayons??! I didn't know you were an artist! Way cool! I was an art minor for a whole semester!
And I so hope our local pizza hut is doing that royal pizza this weekend! I never get mushrooms on my pizzas anymore and that looks awesome...

Oh my goodness, Lenore Nevermore! I didn't know that you have such artistic ability! That is wonderful! The only talent I have is for eating pizza and jelly beans and at the moment I feel very much like exercising that talent. Have a splendid day and evening, dear friend Lenore!

Ab said...

Such a fun post dear Lenore!

AEK said...

OK, the pizza one kinda scares me and I am amazed at your drawing! Great job!
BTW, how did your "talk" with the contractors go?
Were they quivering in their boots?!?!

Your picture is amazing, though I must admit that a pizza with people's faces on it creeps me out a little. I'm guessing you'll wake up early and watch the wedding - I think maybe I'll just tivo it! :)

Helen said...

These pictures are incredible! Haha jelly beans! I love your picture though, wish I could draw

Susan said...

So that's what you've been up to since you got back... Love your arty envelope - I'm in awe of every one of these curiously inventive artworks. And not surprised by the 125 hours - Etch a Sketches are damned fiddly things.. Enjoy the wedding Lenore - and the weekend. Susan xx

I appreciate that you let this evidence of your creativity leak out.

I like yours best... it's the most flattering portrait of the royal couple. My boyfriend's mom thinks that my boyfriend looks like the prince. Sometimes I agree, but my bf has a lot more hair, and a more impish smile. :) I wouldn't trade him for a prince, ever.

Tracey said...

Goodness! Your work is amazing ... you are a wonderful artistic talent!! :D
