Columbus’ Josh Hara took up a challenge last year to draw cartoons on 100 coffee cups. And as the year closed, with over 60,000 followers on both Instagram and Twitter, Hara saw his goal complete. But 2014 wasn’t the end for him. On New Year’s Day, he pledged to draw another 100 coffee for 2015. And if that still wasn’t enough, he told TODAY.com, “I’ve committed to doing 100 every year. Luckily, I’ve stockpiled blank Starbucks cups. I have about 400 blank cups, so, I’m covered for at least the next three years.”
And who doesn’t love a little animated chuckle with their coffee in the morning?
