31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS: Starbucks Boy With Green Balloon Mug

Flynn is a real boy whose image has been transported across the United States and farther via this mug from Starbucks Green Dot collection. Starbucks' designer Esther Asuncion fashioned the image after her real-life son who recognized himself immediately in the image on this ceramic double-walled tumbler.

Designer Asuncion grew up in Guam but moved to the United States to study fine art and studio art. She donned a green Starbucks apron because the job gave her the flexibility to pursue her chosen line of work not realizing that she would eventually join the Starbucks visual presentation team.

She was asked to submit a design of a little boy or a little girl playing with a balloon and her illustrations had to be submitted on the very next day. In my mind, it was natural that the chosen illustration featured a certain three year old boy named Flynn with dark hair, a big smile and a quest for adventure.


This image was one of a hundred designs that were released for the 2014 holiday season and that came packed in a handsome red box making them perfect for holiday gift giving.   Today, you can find the mug on Amazon by clicking right here.

This post is the final in my 31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS series.  There were a couple of days when I wasn't sure what I was going to write about but I eventually found inspiration for all of the days and, as a matter of fact, I have a short list of ideas for future posts. Once you start looking, interesting coffee mugs are literally everywhere.

Meanwhile, you can see all of the posts in my series by clicking on the tab at the top of this page that reads coffee mugs.  To be notified of my future posts and yes, there will be more coffee mug posts, be sure to use the subscribe box on the right-hand side of this page.
