Creative individuals usually vary in their preferred tools as they produce their own brands of art.

Some artists love the idea of using paint brushes and canvases while there are those who prefer carving on wood. Others use cameras in their crafts while some make wonderful artworks with watercolors.

It all really depends on what an artist is more comfortable with. More important than the tools is the satisfaction that he or she gets after seeing the finished piece.

Well actually, that’s what makes artist Stefan Kuhnigk unique among his peers. What sets this guy apart from others is his unusual medium – pen, paper, coffee, and a lot of creativity.

And yes, the coffee is really a part of his arsenal. Aside from consuming it to stay awake, he spills a few drops of the beverage on paper and draws cute monster characters around the coffee stains. It’s really awesome!

Here are some of his caffeinated creations along with excerpts from his quirky captions. Enjoy!

“It’s like men watching beautiful women. Sometimes the eyes just pop out. “

According to Stefan, he accidentally “spilled a cup of coffee” one day and he thought he saw a monster-shaped figure there. He drew it and then the next day, he straightway decided to “do it daily, just to be creative everyday.”

He eventually set up a website and a Facebook page to showcase his creations. Currently, he already has 490 of these cuties and he has no plans of stopping anytime soon.

“This monster clearly has got a message for you: Fu!”

“It never gets old for me, because a spill is never the same. The coffeemonsters are my way of expressing my love for comics, coffee and randomness,” he said.


Also, the German artist-slash-copywriter gets motivation from his online fans. “My favorite moment up until now was, when someone wrote me, that the monsters make her happy everyday. This is so cheerful and because of messages like that I do it again and again.”

Being an artist does not have limits. Creativity is something that comes from within and when one is inspired, the natural juices of art transpires naturally. More than gifted hands, we believe that wonderful masterpieces are products of enthusiastic hearts and resonating souls. Albert Einstein once said, "True art is characterized by an irresistible urge in the creative artist." I think this explains how artist Zheng Chunhui was able to create this beautiful work of art from an old tree trunk. We were surprised to know that a person can possess such intricate talent!

This single tree trunk may look plain and simple from afar.
