If I were to go on a PIKUNIKKU (Japanese romanization of the word picnic), I would vouch for a nice long hike underneath the sakura blossoms in March. There would be nothing more fitting than an ornate and delicately welcoming Japanese bento box, along with some seasonal mandarins. The "ben" in "bentou" comes from the word convenience, which shows in the cute and compact shapes of each food item. While I was growing up, I was fascinated by the creative ways people would dress up common ingredients, such as cutting up hot dogs into octopus shapes, or the "onigiri"- rice balls "molded" into different forms with a variety of seasonings. Now I can make my bento boxes however I want, but for this illustration I wished to satisfy my childhood fantasy with the picture perfect vegetables and octopus hot dogs, with full on Japanese headband and silly octopus face.
Don't leave your picnic alone! Otherwise, it could be turned into an entertainment complex for ants, as shown in this illustration. It features such experiences as a fruit-themed, theme park, and wine river with cheese rafts, and a ski resort sitting in a cooler.
I just saw this and happy to have made it in under the wire! These are my essential picnic items - jam jars for storage and wine (unbreakable!), sparkling wine (no corkscrew needed), salami, cheese and crackers. My woven basket doubles as a backpack for finding picnic spots off the beaten track :)
The thought of a picnic conjures up images of sitting by water on a long, hot, summer day, with delicious snacks and wine on ice in a cooler.
For the design challenge: Let's have a picnic - I found myself thinking about a picnic from the perspective of ants...
