“I decided to make flags for each game of the World Cup I watched this Summer. I wanted to spread my support for different countries and feel more like a global citizen, without any political or geographical ties. That’s the greatest gift football and other sports can offer, they can genuinely bring disparate people together for play.
I re-imagined flags of different countries, adding a playful reference to that country within the design of the flag. America has one of the best flag designs there is, I really love it, and it was a lot of fun to work on. The first edition of this flag was with a burger and fries but the fries didn’t quite look right in red, so I turned them into bacon. Everyone seems to love bacon.” – Jon Burgerman
Mike Geno is an amazing artist who specializes in creating works of art based on meat. I am not generally a fan of realist painting, but Mike’s work really is top shelf! Mike has just created a fun item designed for all bacon lovers: the Mona Bacon Postcard, sold in packs of five for just $5.00 in his store over at Etsy.com! Postcards measure 4×6″ and are professionally printed in full color with the back side left blank for inscribing your own personalized greeting!
Here’s what Mike has to say about the new postcards:
“Originally, I designed this image for an exhibition I curated called The Bacon Show (Meat Artists Blogspot), which celebrates the glory of bacon. I recently realized this [card] makes sense for lots of occasions, like thank you cards, birthday cards, apology cards, even after first date cards…and “good luck on going vegetarian” cards too!”
These cards are pretty cool and almost sold out, so you’d better haul your bacon-loving ass over to Etsyright now and pick some up!
