Starbucks cups: They're not just for terribly misspelled names anymore. An artist named Josh Hara is turning trash into treasures by using the sides of coffee cups as a canvas for his cartoons — many of which are coffee-themed in nature, natch.

Business Insider notes that Hara originally set out on a mission to draw 100 coffee cup cartoons, but since said drawings have gained him quite the Instagram fan base — to the tune of 91,000 followers — he's decided to keep going.

All habitual coffee consumers can probably identify with this Sesame Street-themed one:

C is for Coffee, that's good enough for me. #100CoffeeCups #238 & #239

Decaf is a sham:

Even Jedi Masters can't get Starbucks baristas to spell their name right:

So that's how he got that nickname... #maythe4thbewithyou #100CoffeeCups #238

Too real:

#229: never mess with another person's caffeine intake requirements #100CoffeeCups #aprilfools #rules

Hara even put a Prince tribute on the side of a Starbucks cup:

Dearly Beloved #100CoffeeCups #PrinceRIP

Check out more of his work over at @yoyoha. And while Hart has found a clever niche with his cup-side coffee cartoons, there's plenty more food-themed art to be found on Instagram, such as the artist who creates portraits with wine instead of paint, and another who makes intricate animals out of food waste like vegetable peels.
