A couple of months back I posted an Art Attack Friday about Anna the Red (or kickintheheadcomic on Flickr), an artist who created some famous videogame characters out of tasty bento boxes. If you missed it, click here to check it out. They are absolutely incredible.
At the end of the article I made a joke where I said — and I quote: “If anyone needs me, I will be in the kitchen recreating a scene from Shadow of the Colossus out of my grilled cheese sandwich.”
Well, Anna the Red (or Anna the Amazing as I am now calling her) decided to take that joke as a challenge and ACTUALLY MADE A SCENE FROM SHADOW OF THE COLOSSUS OUT OF A FREAKIN’ GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH. Using seaweed, a slice of cheese, toast, and a very sharp exacto knife, Anna the Amazing created the above edible masterpiece featuring one of the most classic images from the even more classic PlayStation 2 game. (Check the gallery for her other creation from SotC and check her blog for a more detailed creation process.)
All I can say is: I think I am in love. You are an incredibly talented artist, Anna, and you passed my “challenge” with flying colors. Wow. And since you seem to take my jokes as personal trials, I leave you with this: Man, I can’t wait to get in the kitchen and start working on a taco that recreates the entire opera scene from Final Fantasy VI.
Good luck with that one.
