This guy quit his job to be a full-time banana artist — he calls it fruit doodling.
Stephan Brusche brings banana peels to life instead of throwing them straight in the trash. These definitely aren’t the doodles you drew as a kid in class. They can get incredibly intricate, in fact, he even replicated Alphonse Mucha’s “The Moon and the Stars” on four banana skins — it took him about 3-4 hours to complete.
His passion for drawing on bananas started six and a half years ago. His wife told him to use Instagram since he was a graphic designer, but he couldn’t find anything interesting to post at work — until he saw a banana on his desk. He decided to just draw a happy face on it, and was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to draw on the peel. Thus, the fruit doodling obsession began.
Brusche ended up quitting his job to focus on his doddles more as his fan following grew. He says bananas help inspired his drawings because they’re funny and an original shape. He also eats all the bananas from his art projects.
The banana artist is based in Rotterdam, in The Netherlands and says it’s so surreal he can make money from just having fun.
