People in Seattle consume more coffee than in any other American city, and I am one of them. I can't let a good cup of joe go to waste, so why toss out day-old coffee when you can paint with it?! I have been creating with watercolors for years but recently discovered coffee art. Coffee as a medium not only makes a beautiful sepia tone, but fills my studio with sweet-smelling goodness! You can follow my progression as an artist on Instagram at @allan_carandang.
Prints and original art can be purchased at my Etsy Store: EtsySketchAllan
