CHIP ART---it's in the bag! (Part 1)


And now, in our never ending effort to bring you the quirky and the weird, Catnip presents: CHIP ART!  There's a whole world of creativity out there in potato chip land...and I intend to discover it.  So check out these amazing images, all hand-picked by yours truly. (Uh...you'll have to cock your head to the left to view the cat properly--I couldn't figure out how to set him right side up.)  

In potato chip land, the law of the jungle applies--those that pass the test survive and become famous...those that don't get eaten!

This is just a taste for you (so to speak) as we'll be crunching  our  way into discovering some of the most incredible images ever found!  In fact, I'll be posting more this (Tuesday) evening...so come back in a few hours to see GEORGE WASHINGTON and lots more. CHIP ART...it's in the bag!   

P.S.  I will accept photo submissions of chip art--if they are unique--and credit you for the photo when I post it. (timschaefer41@Gmail.com) I intend to get you all obsessively searching through your potato chip bags for undiscovered art treasures!   Hahahahahahoohoohoohooheeheeheehee....

  2. LOL. I saw the cat right away. I'm still trying to see a baboon, but I like this new segment.

  3. Gives me an idea...THANKS Brian!

    THINGY: Glad you like...hey, the baboon is one of the most obvious ones, to me!

  4. Hey, where's the one with the face of Jesus? You could sell that immediately on eBay. Don't tell me you've already eaten it... Baboon in repose - hilarious *snortgiggle*

  5. Tim, you always make me laugh out loud. Do you find yourself with a leetle beet too much time on your hands???? My fave is the man in the moon. Next time I eat chips, I will be looking for critters - in the chips, hopefully not in the bag.

  8. SELMA: Yes, I'm keeping an eye out for Virgin Mary one...if I post it, I'll have throngs of people camping on my doorstep...don't know if I'm prepared for that yet!

    SHERRY: Actually, I've got too much salt on my hands at the moment! Since you mentioned it, I'm going to post that I will accept photo submissions of chip art--if they are incredible and amazing--and I will credit the submitter when I post the picture.

    DANAKEL: Playing with my food...yes, a habit I developed in childhood.

    EVELYN: The cat looks like a fish to you because you are not tilting your head to look at it sideways! (Even looking at it head on, I don't see a fish...what you been smokin'? LOL)

  11. HYPERCRYPTICAL: Baboon's snout is upper right of chip...his eye is visible just a little higher.

    CAT: HAH...you know, you were inspirational for me in starting the chip art--the cat was the first one I discovered, and it just took off from there!

  12. This is too funny! The family tends to finish off chips in much too big a hurry around here to even glance at them, but I may have to sneak some aside to see if I can't find something :)

  13. I love this...I tend to see hearts in very unusual places, but faces too. Creativity keeps us ever intrigued with what otherwise might simply be mundane...but nothing is, if we look deeper, imagine wider, fuller, everything is magical, mystical, silly, sublime.

    LAURA: What a wonderful comment--and I agree.

    JINKSY, HEAVEN: Wait until Wednesday...would you believe GEORGE WASHINGTON?

  16. Timo, this is torture for my dieting self--though thanks for this novel excuse for running out for a bag of salt and vinegar kettle cooked potato chips--now I can say--"But, I'm looking for art!" Unfortunately, it would have to viewed by X-ray.

  20. How clever, unique and a fun journey to experience! Chip art! At first I thought it was all about chips of ceramics or stones!

  21. HEDGEWITCH: Salt and vinegar kettle cooked...that's my style, mama!
    TERESA: Go ahead--give in!
    CLAUDIA: Art is in the eye of the beholder (I used to say: Obscenity is in the hand of the beholder! Hhaw...)
