A sketch a day keeps the voices away.


Mood: cynical

Subject: Anorexia Girl. She was on Dr. Phil this afternoon. Normally I'm not usually attracted to drawing morbid subjects, but for some reason this girl fascinated me. It looked like she was about my size and age when she started having the disorder, but she also had these really strange features and kind of a mis-shapen nose.

She was probably in her mid 20s, but she looked at least 70. She kept this creepy poker face, shaking and rocking around involuntarily as she sat on the couch. Plus wardrobe had her in some strange dress it looked like they'd pilfered from the local Salvation Army.

I guess she'd tried and failed to get better at 6 different treatment centers, and good ol' Dr. Phil was sending her on to number 7, which I'm sure will be a life-changing turnaround for all, and not a tragic continuation of status quo.

Viva life!
