American painter William Cotton is an New York based painter, known for his surreal candy landscapes. His primary subjects are candy and naked women, often in combination. Will Cotton painted landscapes made out of pastries, melting ice cream, candy, and other tantalizing sweets on female models. He has a professional oven in his studio and makes all of these himself. Then uses them as models for the paintings.
A beautifully done animation on how you became you.

From 300 or so million down to ONE.
YOU. MADE. IT.
Let’s think about this for a moment. The US population is roughly 330 million human beings. For the purposes of demonstration, take almost the ENTIRE POPULATION OF THE US and put them on the west coast, packed as tightly as possible. You’re just chillin, somewhere south of Pasadena let’s say, trying to get free, sweating and hungry with a desire you’ve never experienced before. You know you’re going to die though you think you’ll be the one to make it.
Then like the ULTIMATE hunger games of GENETIC WIN you traverse across the country desperately trying to get to the goal with absolute disregard for the other 299 million people. Your mom, dad, brother, sister, grandma, everyone you’ve ever known dies. You somehow get to the end. Where you bust through a gated base only to be sealed in and combined with another human to make a brand NEW human.
300,000,000 and you’re the only survivor. And your prize is to essentially die and reconstitute into a new being.
