So many fun portmanteaus to craft!

This is great, thank you for posting. It's funny how much more compelling these are because of the visibly splitscreen composition (with a seam you can see if you look for it), rather than photoshopping a more perfect blending.

Juxtapositions like this are often seen in newspaper and magazine illustrations, but there's something about this rhetorical device that makes me think specifically of 1970s era pen and ink drawings for some reason. I could easily see this one accompanying an article article about the 1973 OPEC oil embargo. This one could have been from the waning days of the Vietnam War.

The hot pepper + fire extinguisher one would be a very handy combination.

LobsterMitten, I was thinking the same thing. Being able to see the divide, I think makes the image so much more interesting, and I don't know enough about visual arts to know why that is, but (just making stuff up here), perhaps it's because we don't have to struggle against cognitive dissonance. We can just allow the dissonance because we can see where it's coming from. Also, I think it shows artist intent and vision. Example; I have looked at a water tower almost every day of the last couple of decades, and never did it look to me like a golf tee. I enjoy seeing how this artist sees things, which the obvious dissection allows to happen.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I believe my plate of beans is ready...

I'm impressed the back+apricot is not a woman's back.

These are fun. But, as someone who does photo retouching, the visible joins make me itchy.
