'Celebrity Cereal Art'

Sarah Rosado, a 30-year-old self-taught artist from New York City, turned to corn flakes to create "Celebrity Cereal Art" after inspiration struck one day while eating cereal and listening to oldies and R&B music. "Because music has never tasted so good," is what she says she thought at the time.

The process is pretty tedious. Rosado explained that it takes about five hours to create one piece. A sketch of the artist is first drawn, and the cereal is crushed in different sizes and carefully placed along the sketch. A pin is then used to carefully shape the nose, eyes and mouth. "I love creating and experimenting with new ideas and challenging myself," she said. "It's a drive that pushes me to a different level each time which is very rewarding."
