Red Bull for Breakfast

12/19/13 Diamine Eclipse ink, Sailor pen, colored pencil, Canson XL 140 lb. paper
Way back in the dark ages, caffeine came in two flavors: coffee and tea. Now you can get it in just about any flavor you want, and it comes chilled in a tall, slender can.

In a previous life, when I had just started working for a large software company (the kind that gave its employees free caffeinated, sugar-filled soft drinks all day long and called it a benefit), it was still a novelty to see someone coming into a morning meeting armed with a can of cold caffeine instead of coffee. Now it’s commonplace to see someone like this young man at Whole Foods enjoying his Red Bull with breakfast as he scans the news on his phone. 


  1. I love how you used just a touch of red to make the Red Bull can stand out. Great sketch.

  2. Great sketch, Tina. I don't know how people drink that stuff. Then again, I don't know how people drink Coke and Pepsi either :-) Love the Diamine Eclipse.

    Cheers --- Larry
