Elvis never looked so good.
Bronx artist Sarah Rosado is behind a popular art series of musician portraits made out of Corn Flakes that's been going viral online.
“It’s a little overwhelming but exciting at the same time!” Rosado told TODAY.com about the response. “I never thought my art would get noticed, being self-taught.”
The inspiration for the series came one morning when Rosado was eating Corn Flakes — her favorite breakfast cereal — and listening to John Lennon. She thought it might be interesting to recreate his face out of the cereal and tackled the project. Soon after, she began making similar portraits of other musicians, from Bob Marley to Michael Jackson.
Rosado, who also works as a cartoon artist and graphic designer, said she's always felt compelled to make her own creations and do something no one has ever done before.
To create each image, she listens to the music of the artist she has in mind and “gets into the zone,” letting her imagination run wild. She uses whole Corn Flakes for most of the portraits, but also crushes some of the flakes to make lips, eyes and other smaller details.
She credits her aunt and uncle, who are both artists, for exposing her to art, and her mother for her constant support. Rosado hopes some of the musicians — particularly Jennifer Lopez, who shares Rosado’s Hispanic heritage — will notice her work.
“It would be amazing to know what the actual artist thinks about it,” she said.
