Jello Submarine

JELLO SUBMARINE53907

A few years ago I featured fellow Brooklyn photographer and food artist Henry Hargreaves‘ gelatinized presidential portraits. Well, now he is out with a new set of saccharine recreations of notable historical men… the Beatles! John, Paul George and Ringo all get the jello treatment with their caricatures lifted straight from Yellow Submarine. See his full process and learn more about the project here.

Jiggle

I am a huge fan of Cuddly Rigor Mortis‘ paintings of anthropomorphic food and animals (sometimes cavorting together) and jump at the opportunity to feature her jello mold related work. This painting showcases the special bond between a green jello mold and his cherry-on-top… that bond being a dollop of whipped cream. Cute! “Jiggle” is from her upcoming solo show Happy Food at Gallery 1988 in LA that opens May 15th. If you’re in the area, check it out!

Is it spring yet?

I don’t know what’s happening where you are but here in Brooklyn its still cold despite it being almost April. I took a little jello-hiatus over the long, cold winter but rest assured warm weather and more jello both on their way! I have been working on some very special recipes for eHow and the Food Network for the summer season and will be unveiling them soon. In the meantime, enjoy this yummy looking strawberry jelly illustration that reminds me of one of my late and great jello creations, the Swedish Fish. Happy spring!

We just had our first really warm and summery weekend here in Brooklyn and my thoughts turned to lounging poolside and having fun in the sun. That’s when I came across this jello-mold-meets-pool-party illustration by East Londoner Jack Hudson. The image is part of a series of work titled ‘If I were Small’ in which he “playfully explores what it would be like to be really tiny in the vast world we live in, whether it’s sailing the waves of an ice cold beverage or having a pool party in some translucent pink jelly”. See his jelly mold (as they call it across the pond… and in the rest of the English-speaking world for that matter) and other illustrations in this series here on Jack’s blog. Happy almost summer!    .

Jell-O Presidents

Tomorrow is election day and for the occasion New York based artist and photographer Henry Hargreaves has created a series of presidential portraits composed of carefully molded Jell-O. Information about each president is encoded in the portraits including the use of color, red and blue, to indicate political lean. Read more about the project here and check out some process photos on Henry’s facebook page. Also, regardless of your preference for cherry or blueberry flavored presidential candidates, don’t forget to get out there and vote!
