Tub Man

Who would've thought an apple turnover, or a piece of pie could hide a grown older man in a tub? Yet, there he was, as I began cutting away at the pictured pastry.

But, He Was Cool.

He sure is cool in his vanilla ice cream sweater and Oreo cookie outfit. This all makes me hungry for dessert.

Looking For Something?

Hoping to find some hidden treasure? Who knows This chocolate wrapper couple came to life for me after I enjoyed the dark chocolate inside. Double treasure for me.

All In The Act

I like those breaded fish fillets you pop in the oven, but imagine my surprise when this gentleman with the fancy shirt came bopping out with the clown nose, reminding me of one of the "Clowns From Outer Space" (remember that movie?). By the way, this entry was made in one cut, going back to my beginnings in this genre.

Man And Dog

A carton of cigarettes gave me the inspiration for this cut. The bright glossy box made for an eye catching ad that reminded me of the days when I smoked. It's been a long time. But, I thought this use of the box was a better idea than smoking its contents.

Little Cracker Kid

Little Cracker Kid sits atop his cracker haven, hands in cheese spread, like one caught with his hand in the cookie jar.

British Gent

This British Army veteran was about to enter my mind as I cut a picture of oranges in a basket from an orange juice container. The basket holding the oranges became his hat and mustache. I fashioned  the suit, tie and boots from a coffee cup insulator. He reminds me of an old British movie.

In A Cereal World

In a cereal world it would be perfectly reasonable to see a cereal person running into such an obstacle as cereal falling into milk and fruit. But think of the obstacles we run into in ours.

Poser Eagle

When you're done with your laundry, you might want to consider keeping the detergent container and seeking out shapes as decorations. I found this image in one container that reminded me of an eagle.

A Word About Pareidolia

When I began using food packaging for seeking out pareidolia for this blog I would find the individual images and place them in a composition. But, more and more I find it interesting to find incomplete images, such as a limb or a face and then go on to look for images to combine with them to form a larger composition. A good example of this is my Columbus day (October 2012) entry  where I used pop corn found in a photograph on a box of popping corn to form Columbus' face and beard. Then I fashioned a hat and cape coat from images found on a box of tacos.

     It always amazes me how features such as a nose or an eye can be found within a photo of something like a bunch of pop corn. The fact that without any 'touch up' whatsoever on my part, but merely cutting in the right places, an image emerges as though it had been placed there for the picking. I would encourage anyone to look closely at designs in carpeting, rugs or other furnishings to see what works of art may be hiding within textures man made or even or especially in nature. Clouds are the first to come to mind, although I've seen interesting forms appear in trees while traveling along a tree lined road.             

Cheery Meets Crackers

Cheery looks on, as this little cracker guy runs over a cracker to locate his cracker pup.

I saw this guy one day while we ate these really tasty chocolate covered ginger bread cookies.He seemed strong, once I assembled the parts, for such a treat to the palate.
