A Vegan Nightmare: Egg Yolk Animation

egg-yolk

You have to break a few eggs to make an omelet. You also have to break a few eggs to make an intricate, time consuming painted animation and Duane Keiser has made a career out of exactly this. Watch as he cracks, peels or breaks items of food with just one simple utensil - a paintbrush. It might not be as satisfying as an omelet, but hey, at least it'll last longer.
