Lattemail

Gmail becomes lattemail in the hands of Yuko Honda. On her blog Geeklatte, the 37-year old Japanese artist occasionally posts images of delightful geek-inspired art made atop fresh espresso drinks. Honda uses a popsicle stick and paintbrush to create savory imagery often inspired by Web services and software.
