Creature Cups: A Wildlife Surprise in your Coffee Cup

October 19, 2012

Christopher Jobson

I love these ceramic creature cups by design group Yumi-Yumi out of Brookyln. At the base of each mug rests an animal that’s slowly revealed as you consume your tasty beverage. Good to the last dripping octopus. (via etsy)

A clever capture by photographer Norah Abdulaziz. I guess if you decide you hate your iPad, you’ve still got this to try.

Coffee Time Stop-Motion Animation

May 8, 2011

Christopher Jobson

This is designer Ching-Wen Wu’s first foray into stop-motion animation. She was inspired by the SNASK stop-motion short by Mike Crozier, and indeed many of the shots, sequences, and effects are almost identical shot for shot. However Wu’s seems more refined and perfect, it’s hard to believe this is her first attempt at something like this. Some making-of shots here.

@MayorEmanuel Embroidered Tweets

March 13, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Enterprising textile/embroidery artist cauchy09 has begun stitching some of @MayorEmanuel‘s most epic tweets into lovely embroidered notes. Quick backstory: Columbia College journalism professor Daniel Sinker recently outed himself as the individual behind a foul-mouthed twitter account that satirized former chief of staff (and Chicago mayoral candidate) Rahm Emanuel in the run-up to the 2011 election. This clip from the Colbert Report should explain everything. These embroidered tweets could become a cottage industry.

Let’s keep today’s anthropomorphic vibe going with the ceramic Face Mug available exclusively at Uncommon Goods.

Put a smile on that mug with a hungry mouth cubby that bites off more than you can chew. Perfect for serving milk and cookies, coffee and doughnuts, tea and biscotti, or your favorite snack-time combinations.
