A 26-year-old Osaka-based barista named Kazuki Yamamoto is creating some of the funniest and most impressive latte art we've seen these days (and we've seen a bunch). Check out some familiar faces, straight ahead, and head over to Bored Panda to see some of Yamamoto's most fantastic 3-D latte foam projects, including a giraffe that cranes straight out of the coffee cup, conjoined pandas, and some random guy giving you the thumbs-up, most likely because you're drinking the best cup of coffee art ever.
Yamamoto's entire archive, which seems to be growing by the day, is right here. On a related note, if you're in NYC and want to check out some latte-performance-artwork in person, Mike Breach, otherwise known as Baristart, is painting foaming portraits until 1:30 p.m. this afternoon at the Little Fox Café at 62 Kenmare Street.
