Random Coffee Stains Turned Into Monsters By Stefan Kuhnigk

Published 9 years ago

Coffees spills occur every day, and few of those get to be art. Not for Stefan Kuhnigk, who draws Coffeemonsters from coffee stains. He uses the best coffee for the spills. Kuhnigk then lets the paper dry for 4 to 6 hours. Then it is safe to draw on the stain, and it becomes a tiny happy monster! As a bonus, each one of them gets a short, happy story.

Stefan Kuhnigk is a designer and copywriter in Germany. One day at the office he spilled some coffee, and felt creatively inspired to turn it into a monster. He’s done it ever since, even if his office mates look at him like he’s crazy. But Kuhnigk doesn’t mind. “It never gets old for me, because a spill is never the same,” he wrote on Bored Panda. “The coffeemonsters are my way of expressing my love for comics, coffee and randomness.”

One morning coffee-frog Paul had to cross a road. And because the cars were fast that morning, he had to dance like he never did before to avoid them. Schubidu, like germans would say.

The sleep embraced him for too long. Almost four hours passed since he took the one-hour-sleeping-as-deep-as-a-crocodile-pills. But little did he know that the effect on coffeemonster-crocodiles was even more heavy.

The coffee went gone too fast and then it just happened out of nowhere. Fishorman lost his heart and tried to hold it in his chest. But he lost and the coffee went on without him but with his heart.
