Artist Turns Coffee Stains Into Cute Little Monsters

Art is found in almost everything. It can be found in ordinary objects, random junk and yes, even in coffee stains. German designer Stefan Kuhnigk turns random coffee spillages into tiny adorable monsters. It’s no secret that every piece of art has its own background story and Kuhnigk’s caffeine monsters are no different.

Back in 2011, Kuhnigk was at the office when he accidentally spilled his coffee on some paper. Instead of throwing it away in the trash, he suddenly felt creative and decided to doodle on the spillage. He filled in some lines and shapes on the dried spillage and turned it into a cute, tiny monster. And that’s how it all started. He’s been making monster illustrations with coffee since then and he has now created over 500 caffeine monsters.

 

This Artist Turns Random Coffee Stains Into Tiny Monsters

You know what they say, sometimes accident is the mother of invention. Now, Kuhnigk purposely spills his coffee on paper and waits for the spillage to dry until it’s safe to draw on it. Following the shape of the stains, he would add a head, eyes and teeth to draw each wacky character. His wonderful monster illustrations range from cute and innocent to mischievous. Furthermore, the fact that every drawing was a result of a random spillage only adds to its charm.

 

So, He Starts With A Random Coffee Spillage Like This One

 

And Turns It Into A Drawing

#idrawwhatyousee #3 I was swiping through the 56 fb and 190 ig comments (thank you all so much) reading this: "Elephant carrying a sungazing monkey" by Marieke Veenhoft on facebook. The sungazing monkey became a two headed monster, but well. I saw it but messed up the drawing. Haha. ?? The story: Bruhahahaaaa. Ok. It's not quiet evil, but the sweet elephant, carrying that two-headed abnormality named Konstantwos, probably does not know about it's craving for human flesh. 😉 Follow me drawing monsters on youtube.com/coffeemonstershome Find prints at: www.society6.com/thecoffeemonsters Snapchat me via „thecoffeemonstr“ Made from best coffee, coffeemonsters are a more or less daily thing.

“I really enjoy every single one because I love creation and the determination or coincidence of the coffee hitting paper,” Kuhnigk reveals. “I try to see a monster, character, or figure in it and when I find something, I draw it.”

the coffeemonsters #600 . #600 – the story – Mandrulia wanted t show her skills in ball-throwing, not realizing she threw so hard, the ball flew once around the globe and came back, right at her smiling face. She was surprised, but also a bit proud when she sat at the doctors and got her new teeth. 😉 . . This is it. 600 coffeemonsters and still rolling. Never expected to get this far, but now the next 100 has fallen and i can just go on with that. I wanted this to be very special and thought about a lot of special things to do with the number, but then realized: every monster is special. . And so are you all, looking and reading right now. Thank you so much for following along and for getting in touch for a nice chat, for real projects of for checking out if i could draw something for you real quick.
