EDM #6 Draw your favorite well-loved object…or a childhood toy.
Graphite on Strathmore 60lb. sketch
I thought about drawing my one of my baby dolls. But I never loved my baby dolls as much as I loved cigarettes. Yeah, it’s pretty sad, but it’s true. You just don’t know how deeply smoking is embedded into your life until you try to quit. When I started smoking I didn’t know anything about addiction and I was young enough that I didn’t worry about the health risks. When I understood what I was doing to myself, it was too late I was hooked. This was a hard relationship to get out of, but I did. I can’t tell you how liberating it is to finally have control over (and end) something that has had total control over me for so many years. I only hope I can keep it up, but with the continuing support of my family and friends the odds are in my favor.
