Addiction, 2015. Graphite, charcoal & turpentine. A1

This is something I sketched during my first drawing unit earlier on in the year. I wanted to depict the despair and desperation that addicts as well as their loved ones go through. Some of the figures inside the pill seem to have given up while others still have some fight left in them. On the outside I drew figures trying to work out a way to rescue their loved ones who are utterly trapped by addiction. A painful journey for addicts and those who love them.
