Rx Drug Abuse

Hi Diddly Ho Neighbors.  
I've been meaning to create some more editorial and topical pieces for my portfolio.
All one has to do is flip through a newspaper or magazine and something is bound to smack you in the face.

Lately, I think we all know prescription drug abuse is running wild in the streets.  Its easily accessible, just about everyone has a medicine cabinet and its something that is in the news just about every day.

Basically I wanted to create a piece that was relevant to this topic.
Here is a sketch.
I wanted to show the trappings of abuse, so why not trap someone in the pill jar.

A few work in progresseseses.... I pretty much drew the entire piece straight into Photoshop.  It's something I've been trying to do more and more, I can't get away from pencil drawings though.

There you have it...
