    ""Disposable coffee cups selling for $900 after obsessive doodler turns them into art

    Instead of throwing his polystyrene coffee cup into the trash, one obsessive doodler decided to use the foam surface as a miniature canvas.
    And seven years on it appears that Malaysian-born Cheeming Boey, 35, who is currently based in Newport Beach, California, can't stop drawing on drink containers.
    His unique art collection includes more than 300 designs, from scenes of everyday life to depictions of mythical creatures, and fans have been snapping them up for as much as $900 a piece.""



    Not for the trash can: Malaysian-born artist Cheeming Boey, started doodling on drink containers seven years ago and now his unique works of art sell for up to $900

    They're really cool and the guy is very talented, but there's no way I'd pay $900 for one of those. :no:

    ""Boey grew up on a song bird farm in Malaysia. He initially came to the United States to study Advertising at the Academy of Art University (AAU) in San Francisco, but later switched to Computer Animation. After graduation, Boey returned to AAU to teach in the Computer Animation department. In 1999 he began working for game developer Blizzard Entertainment as a lead animator on Diablo II and Diablo III. During that time, Boey briefly left Blizzard to work at Factor 5 on Lair.""

    ""In 2007, Boey began a daily webcomic about the experiences of his day. He currently posts six days a week. Boey's book, When I Was A Kid, is meant to be a prequel to the blog of his adult life. In May 2012, When I Was A Kid became a local non-fiction bestseller in Malaysia. He is currently focusing on distribution in Asia, but his book is available internationally through the Blurb website. Boey is currently gathering material for his second book.""
