If you’ve been reading my website for a while, you’ll discover I love food and drawing food even more.
I have recently developed an addiction to drawing food in a kawaii style.
Coffee mugs are super easy and cute to draw and they make great planner stickers. If you love drawing cute things, you can check out my post here on how to make stickers on Procreate.
It’s also motivated me to open a sticker shop – details will be out soon!
In this post, I will teach you to draw a cute kawaii coffee cup. This also makes a cute drawing for kids also.

How to draw a cute kawaii coffee cup – Easy tutorial for beginners
Please note that I’m using Procreate and drawing this digitally.
You can even use Clip Art Studio as it is a beautiful software that most digital artists use, including Manga and Anime artists.
I talk more about how I got started with digital art here.
You can use any tool you want to make this drawing because the process is basically the same. You can use color pencils, pens or crayons – it’s completely your choice!
Step 1: Draw the cute kawaii coffee mug
Let’s just start by drawing the cup first.
Draw a large U shape – this will be your big coffee mug.
Next, let’s draw the top of the cup. You’ll want to draw a giant semi-circle on top of the U shape like this:
Next, let’s draw the rim of the coffee mug.
On top of the shape we’ve just drawn, draw a huge oval shape in the center horizontally like this:
Our mug is almost done.
But it would look nice with some coffee inside. So, let’s draw a liquid shape inside the coffee mug. This will be the coffee.
And finally, let’s draw the handle of the mug. On any side of the coffee cup, just draw 2 concentric c shapes. This will be our cute coffee mug handle.
You can leave the coffee mug like this, or you can turn it into a kawaii coffee cup by adding 2 small eyes and a mouth.
I’m going to make the coffee cup kawaii and add 2 small circles and a U shaped mouth in the center like this:
And we’re done drawing the coffee cup.
Now it’s time to color it!
Step 2: Color the kawaii cute coffee cup
You can color the coffee cup any color you want.
I’m going to go for cream because I love this color and I feel it will complement the coffee color too!
Please use any color you love – because a cup can be absolutely any color. You can even add designs and patterns to your coffee mug!
Next, I’m going to color the inside of the coffee mug. I’m going to use a darker color than the color I used for the outside of the coffee mug.
Next, I’ll color the coffee a dark brown like this:
And lastly, I will add 2 peach colored blush spots underneath the eyes like this:
We’ve got a very kawaii cute coffee cup now.
You can definitely need it like this or add some highlights like how I’m doing. If you’re drawing this coffee cup traditionally, then you can use a white gel pen like this to draw the highlights.
Alright, and we’re done.
We’ve officially learned how to draw and color a coffee cup!
I hope this tutorial was helpful to you and you enjoyed drawing this cute kawaii coffee cup. You can even use this post as a cute kawaii coffee cup drawing reference.

And believe it or not, there is not 1 single good online course about learning how to draw kawaii art and then making physical stickers on the internet. I’ve been looking for a course like this for a long, long time.
And it’s finally here!!!
You can create your own stickers and print them and sell them on Etsy or any space! She goes into detail about how to draw the characters.
This is by far one of the best courses I’ve taken that is so cute and so educational.
The course is in English, and it’s amazing!
What do you need?
A sketchbook, Photoshop, and a graphic tablet so that you can draw the kawaii characters. If you want to make stickers, you’ll need a printer and sticker sheets.
Even if you don’t want to make stickers and just draw kawaii characters, this course is perfect!
And if you are really keen on improving your drawings or you want to create cute kawaii animals and kawaii people, check out this second course by Sara.

It is in Italian but it comes with subtitles and it’s really easy to follow.
