"I am such a big fan of Britney Spears. I love ALL her songs which gave me reason to create a portrait of her in Corn Flakes form," explains artist Sarah Rosado, who clearly wasn't listening when her parents told her not to play with her food.

Mom and Dad know there's a storm a'comin' and they won't stop texting updates. While the crabby teen inside all of us is thinking GAHHH I HAVE THE INTERNET FOR THIS, there's also something super sweet about the concerned texts prying into our refrigerators, preferred modes of transportation, and (per usual) personal lives.
Never fear, family: We will be taking the local train home, and will be living off vegan cheese and leftover pizza until further notice. Thank you for sending these messages. We love you.
