'Picasso of Starbucks' draws faces on coffee lids

'Picasso of Starbucks' draws faces on coffee lids

Gisberto "Bert" Bertucci, 70, takes the same Starbucks table every morning and sketches away at the Newport Beach store. It takes him about five minutes to turn a coffee cup lid into a work of art with a regular blue pen. "I get nervous if people watch me," he says. "It's overwhelming when they like it, and ask me to sign it. Sometimes they ask, 'Do I really look like that?' and I tell them, 'Yes, but that's not my fault.'" Here's how he got started: "One morning, I came into Starbucks and saw a Christmas tree in here, but it was bare and had no ornaments. It looked sad. So I decided to draw sketches on the coffee lids and used them to decorate the tree." * Homeless artist turns Starbucks coffee lids into portraits
