Artist Makes Honey Boo Boo Child Portrait Out of Trash
In what can only be called a very literal undertaking, artist Jason Mecier's latest piece is a portrait of Honey Boo Boo Child, the white trash reality TV star from Toddlers & Tiaras, made out of 25 lbs of trash. Get it? It's made of trash because she's trashy! The portrait features:
... two cans of hair spray, three tiaras, make-up, mascara, fake eyelashes, coupons, sketti, butter, ten cheese balls, two Red Bulls, one Mountain Dew, a McDonald's chicken nugget, a pink Snuggy box, an empty toilet paper roll, one cabbage patch doll and a jar of Pigs Feet.
Honey Boo Boo is the self-given name of Alana Thompson, a seven-year-old beauty pageant contestant from Georgia whose Red Bull and Mountain Dew habits, as well as her flamboyant catchphrases like "a dollar makes me holler" have earned her much attention, including a TLC spin-off show of herself and flatulent family, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
Mecier's portrait took him 50 hours to create, and the likeness is damn near apt, but we can't help but wince a little at the train wreck. This kid is going to make Gary Coleman's upbringing seem stellar in comparison.
