When the Department of Awesome Overindulgence gets a hankering for a milkshake, not just any shake will do. They want a milkshake like these towering tributes to sugary decadence from Black Tap restaurant in New York City. 

Each of their spectacular milkshakes is topped with tantalizing ingredients such as chocolate-dipped pretzels coated in m&m’s, s’mores, ice cream sandwiches, brownie ice cream sandwiches, cotton candy, a caramel apple, a plethora of candy, or a whole slice of cake atop a huge dollop of frosting and sprinkles:

Follow Black Tap on Instagram to check out more of their gloriously gluttonous milkshakes and other mouthwatering offerings.

The experiment in full. 

I’m approaching 600 followers! It makes me very happy that you’re enjoying my drawings. I started this blog as a way of pushing myself to draw consistently, and your response is the best motivation I can get.


Years after years, life goes on. But we all interact with each other in the end. We will all die in the end, from immortal or mortal. That’s what makes us humans after all. We must protect our fragile little world, even if it’s cruel and merciless.” - Unknown 


The Department of Awesome Overindulgence loves the Holiday season because it’s prime feasting time. Today they’re celebrating the gloriously gluttonous Piecaken, cake baked with pie inside each layer. Whether it’s a fruity Cherpumple or the more autumnal PumPecApple, these over-the-top desserts have something for everyone, assuming everyone loves cake and pie.

Piecakens are hefty confections, so if you’re looking for something that’s a bit lighter and easier to transport (but still impressively decadent), we recommend trying Miniature piecakens or piecaken cupcakes:

No rabbit food for him.

As you may have noticed, I like a guy with ink, but drawing tattoos with perspective is really tricky–specially when they don’t rest on shapely muscle but shifting fat. So as an experiment I thought I’d insert and manipulate this big guy’s tattoo digitally. What do you guys think?
