Probably for many of you the name Tomoko Shintani might sound unfamiliar. This Japanese artist achieved great popularity through her creative illustrations where the typical Starbucks cup is always present and also plays an active role in her artworks. So that’s how came to light this particular form of art almost unexpected few years ago: while she was taking one of her coffee and drawing like many others creative do, apparently nothing special. But this is the typical example of how the power of the web and Social media (in this case Instagram) can transform a normal action into a viral phenomenon. Since that time Tomoko Shintani created plenty of cool illustrations, always with her Starbucks cup on the table.
“People ask me why I started this series or what inspired me was, however there was no particular reason or idea. I love drawing or painting, and just drew on a cup because it was ‘paper’,” she stated.
