Alcoholic


I suppose I should expound on this title. I started the series on “alcoholics” 11 years ago in Los Angeles. All the subjects I have drawn so far are self-proclaimed alcoholics in recovery. They are sober and have been since their sobriety date which may have been years ago but they identify themselves as alcoholics as part of their treatment. This is not some kind of study in causality or a before and after contrast. I did not know them when they were actively in addiction but I wanted to see if there was something in common I could see by the drawing. I usually end up hearing something of the story of their recovery as we sit for these drawings which last about 30 to 40 minutes.12-15-2012_Erin001
