I discovered Joel Penkman's work through various blogs before - one of these days I will buy one of his pieces! He is a painter and graphic designer by trade, but specializes in food art. All those childhood staples (at least UK ones), comprise the bulk of his work, and a lot of the types of foods we seem to have an emotional connection with: birthday cakes, popsicles, chocolates. All pieces are painstakingly hand painted. His larger pieces can be bought on his site, while smaller pieces and prints can be bought from his etsy store.
