Portrait from self.
His Deliciousness, the Flying Spaghetti Monster, made from His own body. An FSM portrait made from several kinds of pasta and lots of glue. (why yes, it did take longer than I thought!)
I hadn’t seen anybody do an FSM piece from dry pasta yet (my Google-Fu might be lacking though), and figured I’d rise to the occasion. Just to make sure I wasn’t completely wasting my time if unoriginal, I compensated by thoroughness and such.
Canvas size is 50x50cm.
Inspired/based on FSM artwork from Venganza.org (the website where the FSM first made himself known), and fan-made images from around the internet.
I first made a sketch of the outlines of His body on canvas, then glued over these lines with small pieces of broken spaghetti. The inner spaces (noodles, meatballs and eye stalks) were made dark with ink (to hide the gaps) before using several kinds of broken down pasta to further fill in His body. I finished up by filling in the eyes and background, hiding all mistakes beneath a thick carpet of pasta. Somehow I used a pound of sweet, sweet glue in the process.
In total 7 different kinds of pasta were used to create the piece. Spaghetti for the outlines, tagliatelle to fill in His noodly appendages, a bit of vermicelli on the eye-stalks, green & orange fusilli for His meaty balls and glass noodle on the eyeballs. The background is filled in with broken down lasagna Verde sheets on the bottom and ground up Chinese egg noodle on top.
