If you’d like to lighten the mood at your next fancy dinner party, you might consider taking a cue from Calamityware by artist Don Moyer.
Using a set of dishware given to him by his great-grandparents as inspiration, Moyer added elements such as giant robots and UFOs to the tranquil willow-patterned themes. Hopefully your stuffy friends have a sense of humor.
For instance, around the holidays when you have nothing by Peppermint White Chocolate Mochas on the brain — you could ingest the same amount of calories from almost four cans of Coca-Cola. A Green Tea Latte must be healthy, right? Wrong. A medium McDonald’s fries could replace it in the calorie department.
Although, now you know you could have a yummy coffee drink, instead of the 150 Skittles often ingested in one sitting.
We’ve certainly seen our share of coffee cup art. But what about those cardboard sleeves that keep you from burning your hand on your mocha-choca two-pump half-caf latte?
Corporate banker and coffee sleeve artist Ahmed Al Emairi tries to improve upon the under-appreciated insulator with his Instagram project, Starbucksism. Ahmed uses the iconic Starbucks mermaid to recreate illustrations of pop culture icons, from Darth Vader and Jack Sparrow, to Michael Jackson and Steve Jobs.
