Arizona: The Big Cheese
Kansas-based artist John Holcomb considers Arizona the Holy Land.
Or, make that Holey Land.
In his geography-inspired series of illustrations, The United Plates of America, he transforms the states of the union into popular foods. And no, he doesn't see Arizona as a giant tortilla, a plate of tuna tartare, or a gourmet burger.
Instead, we're a big ol' hunk of Swiss cheese. Turns out, it was the shape of our state that got the artist on a dairy tangent.
Our sister blog, Jackalope Ranch, unearthed that tasty tidbit for a new series called 365 Ideas. Take a look every day for something fun and funky.
