Here’s a portrait of Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am made entirely out of literal black-eyed peas (the vegetable, not pieces of the other members). It is, like the the band’s lyrical wordsmithery, truly amazing.

Wow. I’m not just making the obvious joke when I say that this is easily the most impressed I’ve ever been by a Black Eyed Peas related thing. Actually, I had black-eyed pea fritters at an African restaurant once that were really tasty, but we’ll call that a close second.
Artist Lee Merricks was commissioned to make the portrait by the UK theme park Alton Towers to honor the band’s upcoming show there, and spent parts of four days placing more than ten pounds of black eyed peas on the canvas by hand. So basically, he demonstrated effort and attention to detail reminiscent of the Peas’ Super Bowl choreography. (MAN these Black Eyed zingers write themselves.) Awesome portrait though – can I request one of The Cranberries?
