Ten years ago I did a series of drawings called Emotional Vampires. My reaction to a world overrun by narcissists and megalomaniacs. The exact opposite of what a good disciple should do.

Use Me, Use you, colored pencil

The unfortunate dynamic of a parasitic relationship. Where they should be symbiotic.

While often hyper-sensitive themselves, emotional vampires are notoriously insensitive towards others.

The Collector, colored pencil

Emotional vampires hop from relationship to relationship, draining people for all they are worth before moving on.
