'Celebrity Cereal Art'

Sarah Rosado, a 30-year-old self-taught artist from New York City, turned to corn flakes to create “Celebrity Cereal Art” after inspiration struck one day while eating cereal and listening to oldies and R&B music. “Because music has never tasted so good,” is what she says she thought at the time.

The process is pretty tedious. Rosado explained that it takes about five hours to create one piece. A sketch of the artist is first drawn, and the cereal is crushed in different sizes and carefully placed along the sketch. A pin is then used to carefully shape the nose, eyes and mouth. “I love creating and experimenting with new ideas and challenging myself,” she said. “It’s a drive that pushes me to a different level each time which is very rewarding.”

See more of Rosado’s work on her website.

The O.J. Simpson Saga 20 Years Later: Where Are They Now
It was a story that captivated the world: a beloved former football star accused of killing his glamorous ex-wife and her handsome friend in a grisly crime of passion. The O.J. Simpson saga was part Shakespearean tragedy and part trashy daytime soap opera, with an unlikely cast of characters and a juicy plot so strange and twisted that few dared to look away. Debating whether O.J. was guilty or not became a national pastime — encouraged by the fact that virtually every second of his trial was broadcast on television. And that debate was often divided along racial lines, underscoring the painful truth that blacks and whites continue to have drastically different views of justice in modern- day America.
