Starbucks Sleeve Art Project Update, 2/13/12

Hello my fellow coffee lovers. This past week seemed to be the week of aliens, (that link was just for SEO purposes only) and I have now received the very first sleeve art that came from outside Starbucks. That’s right if you have a favorite coffee joint other than Starbucks please don’t be afraid to send me work on another sleeve. If I begin to start getting a lot of other drawings on different sleeves I’d properly change the name of this project. Speaking of Starbucks I just got another 15 stars for my free drink and I am patiently….very patiently waiting for that post card in the mail. Well without further ado I present to you last week’s sleeve art designs enjoy! If you’d like to be apart of this project please submit your drawings to ben@benjamingreger.com which then will be featured here and through my Instagram.

Starbucks Sleeve Art Creating New Heights

Hello everyone! It was a busy weekend of food, laughs, drinks, and great people, and of course coffee! We can all celebrate the GIANTS WON!!! It was a good game, the commercials however sucked, but that’s okay…I guess. Sorry for the late post on this one, a lot of you have been taking this Starbucks Sleeve art project to new heights. I want to thank Megan again for her awesome submissions like always, my father, Matthew Greger, who has been doing some serious art work to his Starbucks Sleeves. My awesome cousin Elizabeth, I had a great drawing submitted by Paula “Through the maze past the tree and beyond the stars,” and of course Audrey! I just wanted to take a moment and really thank all of you who have submitted. I think this art project that we are all working on is going to become much bigger than I think any of us really expect. I look forward to continuing this awesome project with you guys in the hopes that it really does amount to something bigger. So again, thank you, thank you, thank you! Remember if you’d like to be apart of this project please send your submissions in an email to ben@benjamingreger.com I look forward to seeing what you guys come up with. I’ll post them here and through my Instagram! Here’s last week’s submissions:

Starbucks Sleeve Art Update

Hello everyone, I hope your weekend has been filled with great people, and lots of coffee! It’s a beautiful day….actually it’s been a beautiful week here in Orlando. Not going to lie this place is sort of kinda growing on me, yes absolutely the people aren’t the greatest of drivers, but come on this place has some hidden spots all over. Not to mention next month I get to work with a wonderful nonprofit organization here in Central Florida, United Arts. I’m pretty excited for all the ArtsFest events, and of course I’ll keep you readers up-to-date with all of that fun stuff!

Anyways let’s dive right on in. Earlier this week I received an email from an awesome reader who was interested in more of this small project. She’s been collecting coffee sleeves for a little over 5 years!!!! 5 YEARS!! That blew my mind. I just started this small little project and I am already getting a lot of great art! This week I got two submissions from Megan Jakobson. Here are her two photos, remember if you want to be a part of this project just send me your pictures to ben@benjamingreger.com or @ reply me on twitter @benjamingreger and I’ll post them on my Instagram, and here as well of course!

Starbucks Sleeve Art Review

Hello fellow coffee lovers, and Starbucks fanatics! Welcome back to another great, or I should say a beginning week to the Starbucks Sleeve Art project! I got one submission this week from Robert who drew some great art on his Starbucks sleeve, and outside of Audrey I had another fellow classmate of mine draw something for me as well. This has been a great beginning process to this little project, and honestly I have no idea where it will go, but it sure is a lot of fun to see what people are going to draw. So without further review here is the awesome art. Just a side note quickly if you’ve got some sleeve art drawn just send it my way to ben@benjamingreger.com and I’ll make sure to post it when I receive it. Obviously you’ll get the credit and all that, remember it doesn’t have to be elaborate or anything, just have fun with it!

Starbucks Sleeve Project

Hello again! Here is something exciting that I have slowly started working on that I think you’ll all enjoy. You see I was sitting in class, funny thing is the class is titled PCP for short, however we’re not on drugs so don’t worry! Anyways, and I had brought in a cup of Starbucks, and you all know they give you a sleeve to project your fingers/hands from the “extremely hot beverage” that you’re about to enjoy. Well while I was sitting there I had taken the sleeve off, the coffee had cooled down by this point, and my dear good friend Audrey took the sleeve. She then drew on it!

This got me thinking, what if I got people to just start randomly drawing on their Starbuck sleeve’s and mailing them in to me so I can photograph it and then do something even cooler with all of them after! I mean that’s the long term idea with it, but I have already collected three, all of which have been from Audrey since I just haven’t had the time to sit an enjoy a cup of Starbucks at a Starbucks. Here are the three photos I have taken so far, and you can follow the journey through my Instagram where I’ll be posting them to the public to view. You can email me your photographed sleeves to ben@benjamingreger.com and I’ll get them posted on here, and my Instagram! Don’t worry I’ll give you guys credit.

Stay tuned, and enjoy the photos!

Continuation of Latte Art

There’s so much to be desired from a great latte, they happen to be my favorite of choice when I order any type of coffee. This And Art special is a continuation of some great latte art designs from around the web. If you click the photos it’ll bring you back to the desired web page I found them from. A great quote from blogger, Andrew Vesselinovitch wrote on his Coffee Art post, “If life is powered by sugar, sex, and coffee, these images may be close to pornographic.” One of his coffee art photos is displayed here, and he’s absolutely right these photos are almost pornographic. I can’t help but say, I love the sex of coffee! Enjoy!!

 

Latte Art

For my first posting of And Art, this issue includes latte art from around the web. It’s always a pleasure when you get a latte that just has a beautiful design on top. At first it’s a bit intimidating, it’s like you don’t want to ruin the design. However it’s just a delight to have, because chances are if that latte has a great design on top, it’s got a great taste to follow! I remember there’s this little coffee bar in Chelsea Market that does a great little design on top of their lattes, Ninth Street Espresso. Enjoy the beauty of the latte art!

Peace & Love,

Benjamin
