Coffee drawings

During my 2022 residency in Greece, Jane suggested I do coffee drawings every morning. For ~60 minutes, I look at the bottom of a coffee cup (with residual coffee grounds, tea leaves, matcha, etc), find something interesting, and draw. It's such a calming practice, like yoga for the creative brain, or a visual version of The Artist Way's morning pages. You can't get it "wrong" – what you see is what you see – and you get to work on expression, line work, composition, storytelling, engaging with the piece, and free play.
