Our next Happy Monday is an imaginative play on the amusing and surprising similarities between certain objects and organisms

This week's Happy Monday comes courtesy of Ecuadorian artist and illustrator Javier Pérez Estrella AKA Cintascotch, whose delightful artworks use everyday objects as the starting point for imaginative illustrations. Playing on the amusing and surprising similarities between certain objects and organisms, in terms of shape and appearance, Cintascotch's is a joyful world of flower-trumpeted gramophones, straw-wielding Charlie Chaplins and satsuma lungs. Here we bring you our favourite pieces, sourced from Cintascotch's brilliant Instagram feed, to cheer up a rather chilly Monday.

Happy Monday! #anotherhappymonday
