There may be many storms in tea cups in the age of the internet, at least in a figurative sense, but one artist has managed to turn them into a thing of beauty.
Brooklyn-based designer Victoria Siemer, aka Witchoria, told i100.co.uk that she makes her "coffee cup manipulations" as a nice way to get her creative juices flowing each day.
Aesthetically, I was playing around in Photoshop with the idea of microcosms, imagining a universe in my cup. As the series developed I started adding in imagery of the ocean.
To me, the ocean is a lot like space, vast and full of unknowns. Sometimes I jokingly call it 'seapression', as I tend to work with water imagery when I’m depressed.
