Coffee has incredible powers. It has the ability to jumpstart our day and spark amazing conversations with people. And there is more superpower in a coffee mug than meets the eye – coffee also has the ability to make you more creative.

Cinzia Bolognesi, an Italian illustrator and graphic designer, developed a morning ritual that proves our theory: not only does coffee help get you moving, it helps jumpstart your brain so you overcome the first hurdle to unlocking your creative triggers.

One day while she was having breakfast, Cinzia found a way to utilize the energy boost and creativity that her cup of coffee brought by using her napkins to create magical tiny sketches around her drink: “One morning… I was having breakfast on a black sheet that I normally use for work. Looking at that sheet with cookies on it, I started drawing some stories unconsciously. I just loved it, so since then it has become a wonderful morning ritual with my cup of coffee when I’m not in a rush”.

Cinzia’s coffee illustrations show how mundane routines can produce creative magic. Check out some of her tiny sweet works of art below and visit her instagram for more!
