Styrofoam Coffee Cup + Sharpie = Art

20090804-styrofoamcoffee.jpg

Foam cup artist Cheeming Boey of Newport Beach, California, creates intricate designs using the underexplored medium of Sharpie pens. His Flickr set includes images of noodle shops, faceless diners, scaly fish, Japanese gods, and more, which sell for about $120 to $220 each. Styrofoam cups may typically be associated with ocean pollution and non-biodegradable landfill waste, but they are looking pretty snazzy here. Read this interview with Boey on the Sharpie blog.
