The Pill Popper Collection By Jaymie Metz
One evening before my wife and I were about to go on a date for dinner, I asked her what I should draw. She replied, “Why don’t you do a happy pill and a chill pill? You could make them pink and yellow.” So I said “Yeah why not?” The light blue background became the setting for which I started to make my two drawings for the day and I began with the chill pill. I looked for a pink that would be a good chill color for the chill pill drawing I was about to begin, the pink really popped against the blue so I knew I had the right color combination. As I finished I really liked what I had created, became excited to start the happy pill. N Yellow is my favorite color, ever since I can remember. I mean really, yellow is the color of sunshine, and sunshine is happy. So obviously I agreed that yellow is the perfect color for the happy pill. To this day I still love the pink yellow and blue color combination, I think because it is a pastel version of primary colors that really intrigues me. I finished up and got ready for our dinner date and went about our evening not realizing how popular they would become. The popularity of the happy and chill pill inspired me to create a whole series of art works inspired that would late become the pill popper collection. A series of prints to spark every mood including a crazy pill, love pill and a kill pill. You can take two or three of any pill and create a mantra on your wall like happy chill, crazy happy love or just put a single sleepy pill above your bed to take every night for sleepy time. I am always looking for more versions to add to the pill poppers collection so if you have any ideas please contact me here.
