    This Guy Creates Insanely Adorable Monsters Out Of Coffee Stains

    One man's splash is another man's monster.

    German illustrator and copywriter Stefan Kuhnigk works at an ad agency by day and creates magical monsters out of coffee stains by night.

    Stefan told BuzzFeed his creations began when he was sitting in a meeting in November 2011 and got a little bored (and clumsy).

    He knew he had to make a series out of it. He said, "My colleagues were like, 'What the heck are you doing there?' Because on the next day I spilled it on purpose."

    Since then, he has tried every day to make masterpieces out of his little accidents. All of his monsters have their own personalities and a unique appearance.

    He's already made nearly 500 little characters.

    As for his daily technique, he simply tosses a splash of coffee onto paper.

    After the spill, he waits at least four hours before starting to draw.

    And sometimes there's beauty in simplicity.
