Illustrator Intricately Decorates Starbucks Cups

Based in Aberdeen, UK, illustrator Johanna Basford likes Starbucks—from the brand, right down to the coffee, and lemon and poppy seed muffins.

What she’d really like, though, is the chance to have her designs seen on the coffee giant’s takeaway cups.

With her “inky magic”, as she calls it, Basford intricately hand-pens and adorns cups down to the most minute of details—turning these plain ol’ paper ‘caffeine fix containers’ into beautifully decorated pieces, which you’d find hard to chuck in the bin when you’re done drinking.
