This Guy Turns Coffee Stains into Little Monsters and It's Awesome

Creative Market March 31, 2021 · 1 min read

You’ll never look at coffee stains the same way again. They’ll no longer be icky brown blobs, but an opportunity for creation — or at least that’s how Hamburg-based designer Stefan Kuhnigk sees it.
This is the story as he tells it, via BoredPanda: “Once upon a time there was a little copywriter (that is me, Stefan), who spilled a cup of coffee. What emerged from the depth of the darkest espresso available was a small monster. It looked at me and said: ‘Draw me, draw me, draw meeee!’ And then I drew.”
Stefan has created more than 485 Coffee Monsters to date, and he even adds an excerpt to give us a bit of a background on each.
Don’t be fooled by their smiles — these are vicious human-eating creatures, even if they are sometimes opera singers or body builders. Check out The Coffeemonsters Instagram to read each monster’s story!
