Styrofoam Cup Art

I used to do this in the margins of all my school worksheets, and my teachers would get annoyed at me for it. I moved on to doodling on restaurant placemats. I had the right idea; I just chose the wrong medium!

A bit jealous. But also so excited to see something like a cup, something mundane, become something extraordinary. I’d never thought of it and the now I’m inspired to look around me and see what else I’ve not believed to draw on before.
