Mr Midas's Dream of Peanuts

For some time I've been making collages with lollies, which, as you see here, are both patently kitsch and graphic. This Mr Midas fellow is made from Chinese golden peanut chocolates. Don't get too excited about the chocolate itself, I've tasted two, the first to see what they were like and the second in the forlorn hope that they couldn't be that bad. I like the way this peanut brain man, and the Goldilocks girl as well, have a cartoon economy to them, and that even something as odd as a golden foil wrapped sweet can, when assembled, read as human.
