This artist transforms Starbucks cups into incredible cartoons

When you think of the words “interesting” and “coffee cup” in the same sentence, chances are you’re thinking about a time a barista messed up your name, but artist Josh Hara might change that. 

Hara uses the disposable cups from Starbucks as his canvas, drawing vivid cartoons whose subjects range from philosophy to parody. 

He posts his creations on Instagram, and while his goal was to make it to 100 coffee cup cartoons, their popularity has compelled him to keep going.

What makes Hara’s work so interesting is how much he’s able to communicate with of the comics given how little space he has to work with.

Here are some of our favourites.
