Artist Honey, founder of the website Sweet-Station, has discovered a unique way to turn bananas into art. The graphic artist and illustrator always has bananas around the house and, one day, she decided to draw on the outside peel. But, the pen kept poking through the skin so Honey picked up a safety pin and started illustrating through a creative pointillism technique. She makes small punctures in the skin, allowing air to reach the fruit. As the punctured banana peel turns brown, the organized patterns of dots reveal various and incredibly detailed designs, such as portraits of The Blues Brothers and Jim Morrison, as well as playful messages spread across a bunch, like “I want a banana split.”
Each piece takes anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours to create and, when she’s done, Honey takes a photograph and then eats her art as a snack!
