latte artists around the world have sought after techniques and tricks to make their own illustrative mark on milk for both creative projects and coffee customers. japanese food label maxim stick have adopted the intricate, edible stencil work as the medium for a stop-motion animation, playing out the quirky days of young love for a ‘coffee couple’, who meet, fall in love and grow old together.

 

a team of artisans have worked with 1,000 individually hand-drawn illustrations from faces and furry critters to hearts and winter hats to make up the ‘latte motion project’. layered with cocoa powder and rich, foamy milk, the cups of coffee find their way around the frame, setting the story in motion though their careful placement meticulously drawn expressions. take a look at the full feature below, and a behind-the-scenes look into the making-of the stop-motion short.
