When is a Starbucks Siren not a Starbucks Siren?

KidLit authors and illustrators know well the rejuvenative power of coffee. And here is proof that the effect is almost immediate, thanks to Abe Green and the mad geniuses at Bored Panda.

“Like must of us I love coffee that dark smelly and hot thing that keep you running during the day that can only be compare whit tacos and tamales.

One day when I was waiting for a test I finish my cup of coffee and with a pen in my hand start drawing in my cup a really quick sketch that I post in my account of IG before I start my test. When I finish start looking for the messages of friends that love it and during the next days people start brining me empty cups to draw on it.

So I make a series of cups with the title of “The Secret Life of the Starbucks Siren” after that more people start asking me for special designs so that’s how the second series came out.

I believe that anything in this world is a canvas and you can use it to express yourself and in this case I use what must of the people think is garbage.”

Celebrities as Disney Characters (fun!)

Apparently, I’m on a Disney kick lately. Any way, the pictures taken by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz of celebrities as Disney characters from http://likes.com/celebs/celebs-as-real-life-disney-characters are stunningly composed, and really tickled my fancy and floated my boat. Enjoy.
