Sketch a cafe scene and bring to life the sounds, aromas, and sensations

Cafes are frequented by folks from all walks of life. They are gathering spots for a myriad of people such as creators, artists, makers and engineers. Cafes are where communities are formed and where relationships and cultures are born.

Drawing to Go, an initiative driven by Tokyo-based illustrator Mariya Suzuki, invites people to draw illustrations and portraits on paper coffee cups that cafes use for take-out orders. This paper cup art of everyday cafe scenes has online media in abuzz with excitement.

Loftwork and FabCafe are holding drawing events at all of its locations around the globe (FabCafe Tokyo, FabCafe Barcelona, Taipei and Bangkok) calling on people to draw illustrations on their empty take-out paper coffee cups.

To go with this event, we are looking for online entries of drawings on take-out coffee cups! There’s only one rule: take a take-out coffee cup and draw something you saw.

You could take a pen with you when you go to the cafe with your friends, or go by yourself, take your time, and enjoy a drink as you draw! Drawing on that curvy coffee cup canvas will inspire different ideas and perspectives in you.

About Drawing To Go (By Mariya Suzuki))

Mariya_s

When I was still in school, I used to hang out at local coffee shops with my friends. One day I noticed how plain the paper cup was. Naturally, I was inspired to draw what was in front of me. What I draw on a cup is what surrounds me. Though I am in the center of the scene that wraps around me, the same scene ends up on the outer surface of the cup as I draw on it. In the end, the scene wraps around the coffee inside. This phenomena fascinates me every time. I drink coffee everyday. I enjoy it alone and with company. It’s an essential part of my life, and at the same time, plays an important role of connecting me and people. Drawing my everyday life comes very natural and is important to me, and it makes a lot of sense that I do it with coffee. It’s a familiar exercise, but also a special one. I think sharing that experience with other people will be nice just as sharing some time over coffee. (Photo by Luis Mendo)
