Tea and Coffee Drawings

I have written this post in different forms over the last 10 years. Inspired from the author/artist, Austin Kleon, I started drawing from tea and coffee stains to help reconnect with creativity.

How to make a tea/coffee drawing

  1. Use an index card or any clear thick paper
  2. Take an old (recently used) tea bag and place them on the paper
  3. Forget and allow the paper to dry
  4. Draw what you see

I like to use a sharpie. This helps me not get too detailed with the drawing, and I can use the stains to help create the image.
