Here’s a little marshmallow art challenge. These famous people on marshmallows quiz will test how well I draw.
Scroll below for answers.
I’ve been making marshmallow art for many years now. I even started a whole “mallowart” collection over at Instagram. When I drew this tribute to the great musical artist, Prince, the day after he died, I realized how much I enjoy drawing portraits on marshmallows. I looked up pictures of Prince, zoomed in on his face, searched for drawings and investigated what features made Prince Prince, which made for a meaningful way to mourn. Even if all of those said discovered features wouldn’t fit on a marshmallow anyway, especially since I’ve limited myself to using only edible writers, which are not super fine, I still enjoy the process of getting to know a person and trying to capture them on something small. Not only something small, but something transient, consumable and really not-at-all important.
So I grabbed my food writers and drew more portraits of famous people on marshmallows. To test your knowledge of celebrities AND my ability to capture their semi-likenesses on marshmallows, here’s a little quiz. Can you name the famous people? Answers below.
