Artist Imagines Spilled Coffee As Monsters

Stefan Kuhnigk is a German illustrator and copywriter who works at an ad agency by day and turns coffee stains into monsters by night. Prompted by his love for coffee (and can we blame him?) and clumsiness, he created his first character during a boring meeting when he accidentally spilled a cup of coffee.

Thus, an unusual pastime activity was born – to pour a few drops of coffee on paper and finish drawing funny and fantastic creatures. There are already more than a thousand of them on his Instagram, and here we present some that we are sure you will like!

#werbung . #coffeemonsters for @fritzkola ✍️ . As i am a lover of coffee, you might not be surprised, i love cola too. Caffein!!! SUGARRRR!!! O_O So there was no second guessing, when fritzkola, a brand hailing from the beloved Hamburg <3, asked me to draw for their #istfritz campaign. The monster is actually drawn with fritzkola “fritz kaffee karamel”. It was a bit messy because of all the awakeninnnnnnnng sugarrrr, but turned out very … well, it has got more eyes than needed, awake. ;) An amazing fluid! <3 .
