I am not an artist, let me point that out before you point it out for me! However, I started doodling last night whilst the effects of alcohol were wearing off and this is what happened – complete with spelling mistakes,terribly drawn hands and pencil marks which I forgot to rub out!
I was listening to a song called New Tile Floor by Farewell Continental and it got me thinking about the relationships people have with drink. The song itself is probably more about a destructive relationship between two people, but to me it seems to be a mix of the two and a comment on how one can effect the other. It’s not just drink either really. It’s any kind of drug, legal or illegal.
I cracked my trusty Stabilo pens out and drew a picture that pretty much represents the way I view drinking to excess. It poisons your mind – not just your body – most of the time without you even realising it, and the drink itself almost seems to get some evil enjoyment out of destroying you from the inside out.
I usually draw things in more of an anime style but since getting into street art and such my style seems to be changing. There was once a time that I would constantly draw but it would seem that photography has taken over for now – and probably for the best, looking back at this!
