A Japanese artist creates 3D drawings using Starbucks cups.

One Japanese female artist has chosen to use Starbucks paper cups as a partial drawing surface.

Her artworks are gaining quite a fan base online. The artist states “People ask me why I started this series or what inspired me was, however there was no particular reason. I love drawing or painting and just drew on a cup because it was paper”.

Most of her drawings picture young children and animals. The doodles usually begin on a traditional white pad of paper. A Starbucks cup is placed on top of the pad and the drawing continues up onto the cup, creating a 3 dimensional effect.

The cup incorporates effortlessly into the drawings. One of her illustrations includes a child holding a balloon. The little girl is seen on the paper sitting with her knees drawn up, while she’s holding a string.

While it remains unclear if she will begin working for Starbucks professionally in the future, her many works appear on her Facebook and Instagram pages for viewers to enjoy.
