Meat in an Ice Cream Cone?

We regularly receive fabulous art submissions from you lucky folks out there blessed with talent, skills, and other things I lack. Many of them are then posted on our wonderful DeviantArt page. Some pieces are just so gosh darned creative though that we have to share them with you to keep from bursting with excitement!

Take, for example, this submission from Nevada Buckley—a student at the Herron School of Art and Design. Nevada, who has been vegetarian for six years, aimed to design a concept piece that would show situations where meat looks out of place. She hopes to show people that when we look at meat from any other angle besides in flashy fast food commercials and advertisements created by people who profit from the abuse of animals, we realize how gross and unappealing it truly is.

Cool concept, eh?

What do you think of Nevada’s piece? Will it help people look at meat differently? Leave your thoughts below!

    I love it! But unfortunately, I’m sure there would be some people who would rather look lie and say they find the image to look good than admit that what they eat isn’t so appealing after all. Hopefully it will be effective though. (=

    That is awesome, hopefully people think twice before eating meat with this in mind :)

    I love this! I’m an artist as well. It’s great because a meat eater will go “that’s gross!” and yet, they eat it. Hopefully they will realize.

    Well done! The art works, not the meat, of course!

    you’re right meat is gross. the meat in your pics resemble bacon. cooked meat has another color. maybe playing with color would be interesting. it’s an inspirational piece indeed =)

    Interesting concept.
    When i first read the ice cream and hershey bar I thought it was about educating vegetarains about milk + dairy + eggs.
    It could go really well with a caption like :
    “Theres just as much suffering in Ice Cream (or hershey bar) as there is in meat. Go Vegan.”
    Overall a cool concept though, I think i might do sumthing like this =)

    Hey! I’m an aspiring artist myself, and I just wanted to say, this piece is AMAZING.
    I really really like the concept of it, and I hope others will take into consideration just how unappealing meat really is, when you break it down.
    Kudos to the artist, this is truly wonderful! (:
    Cheers.

    Clever idea Nevada!
    It certainly shows that when you look at meat as it really is, it’s not appealing at all!
