A Starbucks barista recently posted a photo of a coffee cup on Imgur featuring an incredibly detailed drawing of Middle-Earth, J. R. R. Tolkien's fictional continent where The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings take place.
The cup was given to the barista by Liam Kenny, a 26-year-old artist from Liverpool who created this extraordinary sketch in five hours.
Liam used a HB pencil and a tea bag to give the design an authentic "map" feel, and he even managed to capture the perilous Mordor.
Here you can see the map in all its glory.
And here's another, equally impressive Lord of the Rings sketch featuring Saruman.
Check out Liam's Instagram for more of his awesome designs. BuzzFeed News has contacted the artist for more information on his sketches.
