A daily drawing habit from a daily caffiene habit
I started drawing on coffee cups in the Summer of 2012, and havent really stopped since. The hobby has afforded me many unique opportunities, gallery showings, and press. What started as a small habit while drinking coffee, has become my most recognized art form. Most recently, I was featured on WXXI Arts in Focus and presented at the Memorial Art Gallery for their "Hidden Passions" series.
My cups have been featured on Cool Hunting, Mashable, Today.com, The Chive, The DailyDot, Daily Mail, and numerous other online venues. I took advantage of the opportunity to raise money for the Bay Area charity "Night Night Project", raising money for care packages for homeless children. Each cup sold = 1 care package. I was even invited to the morning talk show, Good Day Sacramento to show them off.
The highlight of my “cup career” was Tony Stark himself, Robert Downey Jr., posting my Iron Man Cup (rigged to glow blue with LED lights) on his Facebook page.
Walter White Coffee Cup
I was contacted by the agency Manning Gottlieb in London to design "Breaking Bad" themed Walter White Coffee Cup cross promotion with Department of Coffee for SONY's Blu Ray release of the Breaking Bad box set.
