Akihiro Mizuuchi is a Japanese designer who recently created a series of cartoon characters out of colorful candy packaging. While many artists experiment with different mediums, Mizuuchi's use of candy wrappers is particularly unique.
The series features a number of recognizable cartoon characters, including Darth Vader, Mario and Totoro. The whimsical characters are placed in detailed scenes that mirror the films and television shows from which they are drawn. Beyond the pop culture-inspired creations, Mizuuchi also recreates scenes from famous storybooks such as Little Red Riding Hood. Each of the characters is made from pieces of colorful candy packaging from familiar snacks such as Ritz crackers and Pocky biscuits.
The cheeky designs offer a new take on several beloved cartoon characters.
