Coffee spills are gonna happen. So, why not make these unfortunate little accidents as adorable as possible?

Coffee Monsters, by German creative professional Stefan Kuhnigk, sees the potential in these brown splotches. After some pencil to paper, Stefan turns coffee spills into adorable little creatures.

Although Stefan’s first spill was an accident that he made the best of, we assume that the 300 Coffee Monsters that followed were done on purpose. Check out more below and over at Kuhnigk’s Instagram.

Spilled Coffee Art Is A Wonderful Accident

When you spill your coffee… Does it just look like, you know, a spill?

It’s OK, we can’t all be artists like Giulia Bernardelli, who sees spilled coffee as an opportunity. The best part is, her coffee paintings are done spontaneously, meaning that Giulia does not plan these ahead of time, and uses whatever means are available to draw with.

See more below and over at Instagram.

If you’re looking for a critical hit of caffeine in the morning, you should be drinking from the D20 Mug.

Panoramic Coffee Cup Art

We’ve certainly seen our share of coffee cup art. The often stark white drinking vessels have become a blank canvas for brilliant typography, comic strips, and have even gone 3-D.

Tokyo-based artist Adrian Hogan is now taking the medium panoramic, with an Instagram video series. Hogan illustrates a scene on a cup, then takes us through his surroundings with a slow twist. Check out more below and over at Instagram.

Cups For The Empire, Stormtrooper-Inspired Coffee Mugs

Inspired by the elegant minimalism of Imperial Stormtroopers, Swedish artist Eszter Imre created a series of coffee cups.

Cups For The Empire is a set of porcelain coffee mugs and espresso cups with a Stormtrooper’s helmet in mind. The horizontal black stripe and the cups’ curves mimics those found on the trooper’s head.

The best part, is that at the bottom of each piece of drinkware, is an Imperial logo. Imperialism… good to the last drop.
