Coffee cups are transformed into works of art by this Aussie illustrator

Someone get this man a city building to doodle on, stat! Aussie illustrator Adrian Hogan is based in Tokyo and he’s found a little niche in the field of illustration. His canvas is a simple coffee cup and his muse is the lively city of Tokyo.

Hogan spends anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour decorating each coffee cup, using just a pen and a small set of watercolour paints and pencils. The finished result is nothing short of breathtaking. But what makes his art even more unique is that Hogan displays each decorated coffee cup in his Instagram feed, complete with a short video of the scene he just painted.
