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.
We’ve covered our fair share of banana art and cool parents who like to make their kids’ lunch more interesting. Now, these two worlds collide with these fun banana illustrations.
Brought to us by Alex Feliciano, after being asked by his wife to simply write his kids’ names on their lunchbox banana, took it a few steps further. And, without puncturing the skin, the bananas won’t be a brown squishy mess by lunchtime. Nice work, dad.
Traditional cookbooks are so over, and you’re probably a fan of crib notes. I Tradizionali is a fun project created by Marina Cinciripini and Sarah Richiuso.
The series consists of recipes that can be applied to the body as temporary tattoos. It’s the perfect way to sneakingly reference your info, without missing a beat at the stove.
I Tradizionali currently contains only a few tattoos, including ‘Grandmother’s Artichokes’ and ‘Spaghetti with Dry Tomatoes and Anchovies.’ The project is currently seeking funds for more recipes and mass-production over at Eppela.
