I saw this food delivery truck today in York, it had a huge quirky illustration on the side,
basically an urban environment but created with food: the sun a slice of lemon. the buildings- blocks of cheese, a ryevita? bridge with spaggetti railings, broccoli florets for trees etc.
I've seen it once before, and I like it, but have now forgotren the name of the company..
So I am unable to look it up on the internet , and maybe find more examples, who designed it and if there's a name for this style etc.

Anyone help please?

I haven't seen it but probably commissioned an artist to do it. I'll have a look around and see what I can find

I think it may be called "a bad trip" or even "a cheese dream". ;)

I think I get what you're saying though but I wouldn't know how to categorise it with a term as such.

Carl Warner is the illustrator, 'foodscapes' is the term for the style. I worked at a festival as a student and weirdly Carl was there giving a talk about his process. Apparently anything involving fish stinks to high heaven, especially since it takes days or sometimes weeks to complete a piece (especially animation).

@scotty / @hankscorpio – I camembert these cheesy jokes…

Oh thanks everyone you nailed it.
But really, no need for the saucy cheese jokes.
Isn't assault and buttery againt forum rules.
Please curd your enthusiasm, it not like I was offering a free week in the Stilton hotel for the answer...

Wonderful, in a way reminds me of:
