For the love of talking food!

Friday, October 8th, 2010

I have a not-so-secret love of anthropomorphized  inanimate objects and I can’t get enough of these Excel and Extra gum commercials.

Poor donut. Characters designs are by artist Morten Rowley. You can check out some sketches on his website here. Great drawings that show some of the development of some characters and their personalities.

I believe my love of talking foods must have started with the Muppets.

All these happy foods make me think of Heidi Kenney of My Paper Crane. She’s an awesome craftster who started with plush toys and now has an empire of vinyl toys, artwork, fabrics, and other lovely things. Check out her shop for your own cute pieces of food.
