Starbucks Coffee Cup Sleeve Art

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.

Do you ever feel like your food is staring back at you? Apparently, artist Victor Nunes sees faces in almost everything, and creates characters from random foodstuffs and other objects.

He’s also been known to bring loaves of bread and bananas to life with a little creative carving. Check out some more of Nunes’ work, or feel free to create your own food faces.

Michelangelo’s Grocery List

Michaelangelos-Grocery-List1

Even Michelangelo, one of the greatest minds in recorded history, was capable of forgetting to pick up eggs and laundry detergent. Brought to us by Casa Buonarroti in Florence, Italy — this sample, from their Michelangelo collection, shows a grocery list illustrated by the artist himself.

Drawn for his servant who was illiterate, the list calls for a herring, tortelli, two fennel soups, four anchovies and ‘a small quarter of a rough wine.’ Hopefully he gave him all the coupons too.
