By now, we've all seen some pretty incredible latte art (previously here, here, and here) but illustrations and sculptures on plastic coffee cups that are better than the beverage inside?

South Korean illustrator Soo Min Kim is kidnapping the iconic Starbucks mermaid, placing her into funny everyday situations, and his social media followers are loving it. From driving her passed-out friends to bathing in money she earned over the years, he shows the popular siren like we haven't seen before. Check out his quirky artworks below and feel free to upvote your favorites.
