Coffee and Inspiration by Quilimo grabs the eye immediately with the dramatic figures of the snarling dragon and towering wave. The way they explode from the small coffee cup feels full of action, like an eruption of creativity. What I love about this design, though, is that even after enjoying that moment, there’s still so much to see. Clouds, a crane, and even a huge fish are also bursting forth from the cup, and red flowers pepper through the piece to add interest (and further unite the illustration with its red sun backdrop). On every level this design feels complete, and the attention to detail in each stroke of the pen makes it all feel hyperreal and magical.
