Sandwiches have fueled at-home sports spectating since the advent of the television, and the language used by sports commentators subconsciously feeds the hunger. In football, a wide receiver is sandwiched between defenders; in basketball, when a starter sits, a sub comes off the bench; in baseball, the hitter of a walk-off home run is hailed as a hero.
Los Angeles based artist Jeff McCarthy has taken the marriage of snacking and sports to the next logical step by producing watercolors of sports stars (and other celebs) perched on sandwiches. The food fest begins with calorie-furnace/merman Michael Phelps sitting blissfully atop a double decker sandwich.
Time to hit the fridge…
