Take an international obsession with coffee, a healthy dose of humor, some blank cups and so many Sharpies, and you have All The Coffee Cups: A Coffee Table Book by @yoyoha.
Why on earth would an artist subject himself to drawing on a curved surface for nothing but internet likes from a bunch of beautiful strangers? To put a strain on my marriage, of course. Allow me to give you a little background.
The year was 2014, and I had amassed over 70,000 followers on Twitter writing jokes on a near hourly basis. But just as models really want to act, I really wanted to get back to my first love, drawing comics. So, one day as I was staring at the perfectly pristine side of my daily cup of coffee, I had a caffeinated shock of inspiration. I drew a cartoon on that cup, snapped a pic and posted it to Instagram and a few days later did it again. And people liked it. They liked it a lot.
So, it being March I challenged myself to make 100 cups by the end of the year. I added the hashtag #100CoffeeCups and set on my way. When I started the project, I had roughly 8,000 Instagram followers. At the end of 2014, I completed the challenge and shared my last cup with 68,000 followers – and I renewed my pledge to do 100 more and 4 years later I got lazy and stopped counting but have easily amassed well over 400 cups by now.
The illustrations featured on the coffee cups cover a wide range of topics, including my love for caffeine (of course), dogs, pop culture, and junk food. Some reveal sage wisdom (“Greet everyone as if they’re carrying a box of donuts”), while others make simple and funny observations. Once the project picked up momentum online, my coffee cups were being retweeted, shared and featured everywhere from The Today Show Online to Buzzfeed to Cosmo.
All the Coffee Cups: A Coffee Table Book is the ultimate collection of the all my best cups, the stories behind them and a bunch of additional coffee-related content exclusive to the book.
It’s the perfect gift for the coffee lover in your life: You.

You did this. A rag tag group of 475 (and counting) supportive friends, co-workers, fans and family members gathered together, stood up and clapped and pointed at me like that Meryl Streep GIF from the Oscars. And I felt it. With every contribution, with every comment, with every Facebook share that kept the momentum going even when I wasn't holding up my end of the bargain.

Hey ALL THE COFFEE CUPPERS! It being Earth Day and everything, I thought I would share a quick update that should give you the assurance that what you have helped fund, the book your support is about to make into a real thing, is so much more than just something to look at when the battery on your phone is low or you're observing the sabbath!

I just learned about this feature on Unbound, so wanted to take a moment to update everyone on the All the Coffee Cups project.
After the February lauch I took a bit of a hiatus on promoting the book. I captured that struggle this multi-panel comic I posted on Instagram last week. And the response was just amazing.
So many people not only pledged their support, but the comments alone really…
These people are helping to fund All the Coffee Cups.
