Over the past four years, Cheeming Boey has been carving out a unique artistic niche for himself. The California based illustrator creates crisp black and white drawings on basic Styrofoam cups.

Following a chance cup-doodling session at a coffee shop (Boey had no paper) he discovered the challenges and benefits of the unusual medium. Using a permanent ink Sharpie Marker, he’s developed his own style, which is influenced by pointillism and Japanese woodcuts. Boey’s cups currently sell for up to $220.
