I Made Drawings Out Of Instant Coffee About My Memories From My Deployment (13 Pics)

ADVERTISEMENT

I spent 8 busy months deployed to East Africa as a combat cameraman with the U.S. military. In the little bit of downtime I got, I used instant coffee in my Meals Ready to Eat (MRE) to draw memories from my time overseas.

I filmed a short video to share my creative process, using all the utensils found in an MRE to make art.
