City Life: Tokyo in a Coffee Cup

Capturing Japan’s street life isn’t as simple as drinking a cup of coffee, but Australian illustrator Adrian Hogan has managed to do just this. Based in Tokyo since 2013, the talented artist created an amusing series of panoramic sketches on paper coffee cups and posted them to his Instagram account. The innovative works quickly captured the attention of media and fans worldwide. He was quoted in as saying: “Using the coffee cup became a fun way to freshen up my approach drawing. You cannot see the whole scene while you draw so you have to work from one end to the other by analyzing the scene  in front of you section by section.”
