There are many discussions on the link between coffee and creativity. Most people, including us, say that coffee brings out your creativity, while others argue the opposite, saying that caffeine inhibits it.

We stumbled on Carter Asmann drawings and our thoughts immediately flew to this ‘debate’: what better proof that coffee helps creativity, inspire confidence and drive, spurring initiative than Asman’s coffee rings drawings? 

Before to start all illustrations, Carter Asmann, a Californian artist, drinks a mouthful of coffee…then, using the coffee stains left by his mug he draws motorcycles, birds, piece of food, etc., offering us these lovely sketches.

His minimalist photographic project perfectly manages to mix the contrast of his detailed renderings with the sloppy coffee rings. Among his most impressive pieces are his graphite drawings of motorcycles and other vehicles that rest on drippy caffeinate circles.
