Illustrator Adrian Hogan (previously) continues to document the world around him in these detailed panoramic coffee cup sketches which he draws and shares on Instagram in these fun videos. Whether sitting in the coffee shop itself or out and about around his home in Tokyo, he incorporates buildings, streets, friends, and the minutiae of everyday life as he works his way around the edge of each cup. Hogan works as a commercial illustrator, bringing his sketchbook style to storefronts, Japanese magazines, and other editorial projects. You can find more of his work and an interview over on Mas Context.
Over the last few days Las Vegas-based barista Mason Salisbury has been surprising some of his customers by pouring a regular looking latte or cappuccino that suddenly ends with a flourish of foamy color. The technicolor beverages resemble the patterns from tie dye t-shirts and are fully edible, though exactly what happens to your insides afterward is still TBD. You can watch Salisbury pour a few of the drinks in videos below and see more on Instagram. (via My Modern Met)
Mixed in with photographs of his scenic surroundings in Encinitas, California, artist and illustrator Carter Asmann shares whimsical interpretations of coffee stains on his Instagram account. Among his most impressive pieces are his graphite drawings of motorcycles and other vehicles that rest on drippy caffeinate circles. The contrast of his detailed renderings with the sloppy coffee tires never seems to get old. You can see more here, and coincidentally, illustrator Oliver Jeffers shared some of his own coffee stain drawings just yesterday. (via Booooooom)
Created by Japanese design brand D-Bros (previously) these carefully hand-crafted coffee/tea mugs made from Hasami porcelain are painted with a thin layer of reflective palladium that allows each cup to mirror the saucer it rests on. D-Bros created many different geometric designs, some of which are available over at Spoon & Tamago.
I’m not sure what part of this story I enjoy more: the fact that there’s a two-story building somewhere in the world that’s constructed to look like a giant Rolleiflex Camera; that the walk-in camera doubles as a coffee shop and miniature camera museum; or that the entire endeavor is the brainchild of a former helicopter pilot for the South Korean airforce. Located about 60 miles east of Seoul, South Korea, The Dreamy Camera should be high on the list for any coffee or camera enthusiast heading to the area. Check out more photos and info over on their blog. (via Peta Pixel, DIY Photography)
