What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Spiller Level: Expert



Giulia Barnadelli

Let me start by confessing that I am a spiller. Can’t help it, and I have no idea why it happens. My hands don’t shake, I’m not particularly careless, but there it is. Typically next to me on the tablecloth. So this would be a really good skill for me to learn.

Giulia Barnadelli is also a spiller, but in her case, it’s more art than artlessness. She has a thoroughly entertaining Insta account filled with spills which she has turned into something wonderful.

“Wen I drink coffee, I reflect on the nuances that I could create if I flipped it on the table. At breakfast, I can imagine the footprints left by a cat who walked into the jam.”

Waiters must just cringe when they see her coming…

You can see all of the prolific artist’s fun work on her Instagram.

  2. I our second date, when I knew Len was “the one,” I said, “I just have to warn you. I spill things.” He calmly replied, “I get my sweater caught on door handles.” 😉

  4. I will never look at a spill the same again–I’m not even going to get upset the next time it happens; I’ll just be reminded of this wonderful work. 🙂

  6. I could be totally wrong. Not the first time and probbly not the last time. I think she does the art first and what appears to be container that it spilled from last. Either way, I love all of them Hal

  7. I love the cleverness of this as well as the artistry. It’s a fun blend of tightly planned and executed illustration with the spontaneity and lack of control of the spill element. I don’t drink coffee but can be a sloppy eater but usually only when I am eating something like curry that will stain my clothes or if I am wearing white.
