Honey Boo Boo, a.k.a. Alana Thompson, has taken the world by storm with her TLC reality show, “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”. Her family has become the topic of fascinated conversation since the show premiered, charming audiences with their unabashed Southern ways (see: Redneck Games) and compassion for gay rights, which to many seem contradictory.
But the family has also become a source of amusement and mockery for some, who deem the Thompsons “trashy” and unfit for television. Perhaps because they’re doing exactly what they signed up to do–document their lives, warts and all–some critics are turned off. But one artist has taken this commentary to the next level by creating a portrait of Alana using only trash which is inspired by the show: coupons, butter, Red Bull, tiaras, and dolls. The piece weighs over 25 pounds and has taken over the web in just a few short days, making the rounds on social networking sites.
The mosaic was done by artist Jason Mecier.
