Peanut artist, or rather “Painter of Nuts” Steve Casino (previously featured here) is still hard at working transforming humble peanut shells into impressively lifelike miniature sculptures of pop culture icons.
"The peanut project began in July, 2012 with the off-handed casualness of hashing out a song or invention on a napkin, but realizing the vision has created serious challenges. Arriving at the right materials, for example, took a lot of trial and error. Learning the right resins and swapping pipe cleaners for bamboo helped, but Casino still struggles with the peanut-specific difficulties of his craft."
Each peanut character requires hours of work. The painting phase alone sometime takes over 10 hours to complete. And, because of the likelihood that a peanut may break during the delicate creation process, Casion always starts out with three peanuts versions per character.
AH!♥ I am getting so in love with vectorial illustration ♥
