Clever Portraits of Famous People Constructed with Corn Flakes

Breakfast time means creative time for New York-based illustrator and photographer Sarah Rosado. Using just some cereal and a few utensils, the artist can transform a spilled box of corn flakes into clever portraits of anyone from Michael Jackson to Amy Winehouse or John Lennon. Rosado says, “I find myself always stepping out of my comfort zone since I love to experiment and challenge myself with different ideas.”

Rosado uses crushed bits of the cereal to produce the many details like facial hair, long locks, earrings, glasses, and top hats. Each unique face is a complex arrangement of corn flakes that captures the individual features of each selected subject. To top off the artwork, she decorates the surrounding white tabletop canvas with dainty white plates, coffee cups, silverware, and flowers. The unique medium results in some delicious-looking portraits.

The artist is no stranger to using odd materials as the medium for her artwork. Dirty Little Secrets is an inventive series in which Rosado created her illustrations out of piles of dirt.
