Artist Boey has a fun collection of drawings on Styrofoam Cups using one of our favorite pens the mighty Sharpie. Boey’s cup collection is an endless diversity in curiosity and whim that will hopefully end up in a major brands series soon. Make sure to see his Process and video of him making one of the pieces which I’ll add after the jump. I think he does commissions too if you want…
I know plenty of people willing to pay a small premium to have these disposable cups any day! Or maybe just provide pens with every cup making it a DIY disposible cup.
I’ve had my share in using sharpies on everyday objects including Styrofoam cups, though my favorite is still the backside of a paper plate for some reason. I’ve always mentioned to students about drawing on more than just paper. Draw what you visualize after reading a page in a book… right on top of the page, sketch on a sphere, a cylinder, clothing, walls, shoes, chairs, wallets, pencils, CD’s, your desk, etc. Just because an object isn’t made to b drawn on, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t.
I’ll post a few of my favorite cups from Boey’s collection after the jump.
