Opioid Abuse Awareness T-shirt

Artist Statement

This t-shirt was designed for the wearer to start a conversation. The pattern in the background of the design is interlocking pill bottles, and the skull is made of scattered medications. At first glance, it is intentionally unclear what the message is, as I want passers-by to take a second look. Opioid abuse is similarly hard to pinpoint, as all too often we are unaware of the situation until it is too late–hence the phrase “pain killer.”
