Fun with Art: Meat Sections

One of the non-beer related blogs I've been enjoying for a couple month's now is Alyson Thomas's Meat Sections blog.  The concept for her blog is amusing to say the least.  Each day, Alyson draws/paints an illustration/painting in the style of a butcher's meat section diagram (you know the type - here's the loin, here's the roast, etc).  But the subject matter of each piece can be very different and she really lets her creativity run loose with it.


I'm a big fan of the beers coming out of The Bruery (Placentia, CA), so I was stoked when Alyson chose to do a piece inspired by The Bruery's Melange No. 6, which she tasted during the 2010 San Fransisco Beer Week.  The Melange Series is The Bruery's one-off, experimental beer line, with the sixth installment being a potent ale with all the the ingredients displayed in Alyson's illustration.


The above just scratches the surface - if you have a second, take a look at some of the other deconstructed subjects Alyson has done.  Here are a couple of non-beer related pieces that I personally got a chuckle and a smirk out of:
Kudos to you Alyson!

If you happen across any other amusing beer (or food) artistic websties in your travels through the internet, please let us know!

Slainte!
