Happy pills..?

It is now less than 48 hours to my deadline for handing in my final major project. I have randomly decided that I need some more drawing work for my sketchbook, which is a little crazy to say the least...what is more crazy is that I am drawing pills...think Mr.Freud would have something to say about that!!
To be fair I did look at these as inspiration in my initial visual research, I loved the colours and shapes, but also along with my theme, the gritty and pretty nature of drugs. I like the idea that they are so tantalisingly pretty, yet their functionality may often be dark and edgy. I think there is a parallel between this and the fairground, where all is not how it first appears. I only wish I had drawn this sooner, think it would have been amazing for pattern development as a motif. I have really enjoyed using this technique which I hadn't tried before which involves blending graphic markers with soft pencil- it really works well. It's definitely something to put on the back burner.
