Some people have sugar with their morning coffee, some have milk. But a few artistic fellas seem to be taking their morning brew with a side of pens & pencils, thanks!
First off we have Colin David Stewart who hand-doodled a bunch of portraits for the coffee-sippers at Six Eight Kafe in Birmingham. I love imagining that a dude walks in, orders a coffee, and is handed this one-off portrait that looks surprisingly similar to his friend Jeff... or his sister Megan, or whoever. What a trip!
And if we're talking about coffee-cup doodlers, I can't not mention Boey. He's a true cup-drawing machine! Sip slowly and enjoy these hand-picked few...
We love it when we get fan mail and this one in particular is out of the ordinary. It came as mail, literally. That's rare form these days and it's a beauty too.
Café con Leche (coffee with milk) is the imaginary home of Roi and Inés from Mexico City. Their website is filled to the brim with drawings, animations and endless goodies, so stop on by and give them some love.
We are so thrilled with the postcard. Next time we're in Mexico, we'll have to share a cafécito!
The small, but legendary restaurant in Oakland, California, Mama's Royal Cafe, has an annual napkin art contest that is well into its 26th year. Hop on over to the gallery page to view an inspirational collection of doodles from previous competitions. And if you are lucky enough to live in the Bay Area, you have until March 2009 to participate.
