Brokeback Latte

So sometimes when you walk into a Starbucks, you see some cool artwork promoting whatever new drink has happily made its way to the menu. And sometimes those little doodles just beg to have their picture taken... Which brings me to the point of this short little post.

This is the best Starbucks doodle I've ever seen. I found it in a Starbucks store in Mansfield, Texas back when the Cinnamon Dolce Latte was first introduced.

And I thought it was worth sharing.

:)

The barista that drew this is truly awesome. I wish I saw more Starbucks artwork like this—creative and punny!

How about you guys? Stumble across any fantastic Starbucks art lately? Or are you NOT as addicted to Starbucks as I am? ;-)

Yeah, sometimes my mornings are too full for coffee. But man do I love it!

And I just saw your blog! Thank you!! Now I just need to figure out who to pass it along to as well! :-D

Sarah Thomas said...

I don't know what's funnier; the picture or your title!!!!! :D It certainly made me chuckle. Love the little hat on the cup! Priceless!!!

One of my coworkers is a professional artist, and he does crazy stuff for us all the time. I'll put up a blog about it sometime. :)

I have found that even though Starbucks is a franchise, each store has its own unique personality...

Ben Burleigh said...

HAHA! that is awesome! I want to meet this barista! We would be friends :)

@marry—Thanks!


@MissWoodhouse—Haha! Thank you! Sadly, it took me a little while to think of it. I wish I knew who to credit this picture to! All I know is I saw it in a Starbucks in Mansfield, Texas. I would LOVE to give credit to the actual artist! Alas…Not sure that’s possible.

And yes, please do! I would love to see some fun, crazy Starbucks art! StarbucksMelody’s blog about that—(http://bit.ly/d45aTh)—was super awesome!


@Matt—HUH. “Hold for Clebo.” I’m pretty sure I still have that post-in, boo.


@Tuesday’s Child—So true! It’s one of the fun things about visiting different Starbucks!


@Ben—I do, too! I wish I knew who they were! I would like to shake their hand. :-)
