I drew this to attack the stigma associated with Herpes Simplex 1, the virus which causes oral cold sores. A cold sore is really no different than the common cold virus. You get it. You have for 8 to 10 days. Then it disappears hopefully for another year or two. Haha!
Size – 8″ by 8″ or 20.3cm by 20.3cm square
I drew this late last year with a Pilot G-tec C4 pen and later added some color using Prismacolor lightfast colored pencils. The paper is light yellow Canson 100 percent cotton paper.
