Artist Rob Draper creates awesome illustrations on everyday objects. Coffee Time focuses on turning disposable and discarded coffee cups into typographical works of art.

The best part, considering that these are words applied to a coffee cup, Draper spells everything correctly. See more of his art here.

Starbucks Barista Illustrates Customer Names On Coffee Cups, Spells Them Correctly

coffee-cup-art

For the few times that Starbucks actually asks for your name to write on the cup, an embarrassing misspelling of your name is imminent.

London-based Starbucks barista, Gabriel Lafitte Nkweti, not only makes sure to spell your name correctly, but turns the names of his coffee customers into works of art.

The art is obviously not done while your latte is being made… Starbucks isn’t that slow. Nkweti takes in upwards of 40 hours to complete one piece of cup art — drawing inspiration from his patrons and various art forms. See more of his collection at his Facebook page.

A Chocolate Bar That Looks Like Melted Crayons

Unelefante-Chocolate-Packaging-Mexico-A

Did you ever, when you were a kid, melt crayons into molds to make them look like yummy candy? Then you realize that crayons are actually non-toxic, and ingesting the multi-colored treat might be worth the inevitable belly ache, so you munch away? Those were good times.

Well, now there’s a truly edible and gourmet version of your childhood fantasies. Brought to us by Unelefante, the Mexico-based chocolatiers have created the aforemetioned Crayon Chocolate, as well as a few art-inspired-bars, including a Pollock paint-splattered bar.

Although the high-end chocoaltes will not come cheap, you might be better off breaking out the Crayolas… For old times’ sake.

A Dress Made From Taco Bell Wrappers

taco-bell-dress

You’ve eaten nothing but late-night Chalupas and Taco Supremes for months. So, what to do with all of those Taco Bell wrappers? If you’re as creative and into Tex-Mex as artist Olivia Mears is, you make a Taco Bell Wrapper Dress, of course.

The dress is made from about 130 wrappers, with sauce pack accents. All of the materials were unused of course. So, please do not make clothing with your chalupa-stained wrappers, as previously suggested.
