Creative Banana Peel Illustration

Not sure since when, banana becomes a welcoming canvas for artist. Instead of using pen, they work with pins and create illustration on the outside peel. Honey, the graphic artist and illustrator uses a safety pin and makes small punctures in the skin. 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. It usually took her 20 minutes to 2 hours to create one. When she’s done, Honey takes a photograph and then eats her art as a snack! Check more banana art on our site.

Stunning Drawing on Banana Skins

It looks like banana art has been a kind of trend. Four months ago, we just featured some interesting banana carving on our site, and today, we will bring you another set of stunning banana drawing. Created by Australian artist Jun Gil Park who definitely has some unique talent of carving drawings into bananas! Basically, he bruised the banana by scratching it with the toothpick. The harder you press/scratch, the darker the bruise becomes. You have to wait for about five minutes for it to really start showing. After a day or two, the lines become very very dark. Too bad these types of drawing can’t stay longer. But it is really creative to make drawing like this. [source]
