The Children’s Illustrated Garden of Intoxicants

Gentle Reader, I’m phoning it in, today, for two reasons: I’m trying to sort some snags out with banks and airline companies, and also because I don’t think I’m actually going to follow through with this project – mostly because the person who was going to illustrate for me has a bunch of other projects that actually pay, but also because I’m not sure how I feel about releasing an alphabet book about drugs.

I have the entire alphabet done, but I’ve only done rough sketches for a few of them. Today, I would like to share them with you, Gentle Reader. If you like them, maybe I’ll keep going with this project, after all.

“A is for alcohol, which brings you elation – until it turns out to be Self-Medication.”

My favourite one was the inspiration for the whole project. The letter is O.

“O is for Opiates, all of them rotten – like heroin, morphine, and Mom’s Oxycontin.”

And, naturally, this charming little volume is meant to close with

“Z is for Zachary, once your best friend – until he O.D.’d in the alley. The End.”

Yeah. I knew there was a reason I’m killing this project.

About Ty DeLyte

Madame DeLyte has suffered a grave disappointment - YET AGAIN - and still believes that freedom, beauty, and truth are what's valuable, rather than vulgar cash. He'd add love to that list - but, well, what can he say about love?

    I really like it, it is so deep to me.

    • Thank you, sir. I don’t know about DEEP, but it might just be funny. To single people. MAYBE. If they have the right sense of humor – my cousin, when I told him about this project froze, and introduced me to his new baby, so…
