Cheeming Boey art


disposable styrofoam cups + sharpie pens + great imagination = cool art for keeps :)
"Just because it's on something cheap, on something disposable, 
doesn't mean it has to be disposable."  
- Cheeming Boey

from Cheeming Boey's flickr
Cheeming Boey works as a game designer and animator in Newport Beach, California, during the day. After hours, he relaxes by drawing on styrofoam coffee cups with a sharpie. The result is a series of 2D picture with a unique 360 degree perspective on a rare art medium. 
"You can look at images of my cups, but it's just not the same. It's kind of like a sculpture. You have to walk around it to really see it."

* another interview at OC Weekly
* one more interview at the Sharpie blog
