Buying cigarettes after all these years was actually thrilling. It took me back to my youth. Smoking outside behind my private school in our school blazers and freezing cause it was Canada. This was before i fled and moved on to the fancy “smoking area” (can you imagine?) at my public high school. I moved in grade 9. I have often thought it isn’t the cigarettes that kill you. They are actually completely innocent. It’s the MATCHES that do you in! Let’s place blame where it belongs! I have no idea why i made this painting. All i know is i can’t stop staring at it.
