When knocking back a cold beer, you hardly ever pay attention to the can. Yet, Japanese artist Macaon notices every picture, letter, and label printed on its surface. Using both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage containers, the artist carefully crafts superstars of the anime, comic, and video game world. Macaon brings together some of the best things in life; beer, sugary drinks, and beloved characters from childhood movies and cartoons. Check out the artist’s website [3]  or craft blog [4] for more examples of incredible animals, dragons, and insects.
