Title - Drowning This piece captures the climactic moment of the story between characters Flindt (in pencil) and Cora (in pen) two friends both entangled in drug addiction and struggling to escape it. Flindt is in the throws of an overdose in this moment and no longer fighting it. The medium of each character represents their physical, emotional, and mental state. Flindt is portrayed in pencil and many of the details were created by erasing, and there are no clear distinct lines. Hes basically destroyed his body, and is ready to let this binge kill him. Hes trying to erase himself, and his view of reality is incoherent and unstable. Cora is depicted in ball point pen. I chose ball point because it is somewhat informal, but still defined in its line quality. At this point in the story Cora is thinking through her own drug use and is trying to save Flindt partly because she sees some of herself in him and if he can be saved the she certainly can.
