soda jerk


Did you know a can of regular soda has approximately 7 spoonfuls of sugar? I didn't until I watched "The Biggest Loser" this week. Yikes, this is definitely a habit I've gotta kick.

Love the play on words. True about coke. I quit 5 years ago. All I drink now is water :)

Neat little sketch! I drink an average of 1.5 cans of Cherry Coke a day. Terrible. Just terrible. I always teach with my soda. :-(

Love your ink work. Do you draw with pencil first or do you use ink from the get-go?

Fantastic drawing! I love the confident line and superb hatching.

Great drawings, both the soda can and the portraits. Yeah, a lot of sugar in soda, but try to see it in a positive way - it is much easier to drink a can of soda than to actually eat seven spoonfuls of sugar. Tastes better. :)

I also have learned, not so long ago, the adverse effects of soda on the body. It is amazing how many negative health issues are related to sodas and similar drinks. It is quite intriguing how the caffeine and the sugar affects the body. You should check out this website and see what else soda does to your body. It is very interesting. If the address does not work go to healthbolt.net and in the search engine type in soda and the body and read some of the articles. The most interesting was the article that was titled. "What happens to your body when you drink a coke right now".

Now why did you have to tell me THAT? I just gave up Diet Coke after hearing from a bunch of friends about aspartame. Now, what am I gonna drink? hehe. Great drawing Suzanne!

Great drawing - that Coke can even looks kinda sad. to me the worst part about Coke is not just that it's 7 spoonfuls, it's that it's 7 spoonfuls of ultra-refined high fructose corn syrup - not even real sugar!
