Caffeine 9 to 5

By on Caffeine 9 to 5 is a commentary on the often cyclical and confusing nature of work.


Caffeine 9 to 5 is a commentary on the often cyclical and confusing nature of work. Starting from the bottom going clockwise, we begin the day with sentiments of openness, play, and ease. The mind appears to be in fluid imagination, but as the day draws to a close, the scene is violently interrupted by a mishmash of darkness, noise, and strange creatures. Following the disturbance, the subject awakens to a contorted, rectangular version of himself. He then consumes his morning beverage and embarks again on his daily adventure.

My hope with this drawing is to illustrate the cyclical dynamics of work and to encourage the viewer to imagine new dimensions outside of the confines of one’s assumed reality.
