About a failed Chemistry experiment, and only an eye-test to check it turned out okay

...oh, and it's about my love of drugs.

Drawing and text by me.

For those who want to get involved, but don't know where to start, there's a number of websites which can help you make images without any design software skills. I'm not affiliated with any of these and they should all be free. If not please let me know and also tell me if you know any others which are good:

Just asking - what standard are the images to be?
Are they meant to be professionally done?
Are they meant to be done at our own hand?
Are they meant to be computerised drawings? Freehand?
How about freehand plus filtering and photoshop?

Could you fill me in more on what you are looking for? Many thanks,

TOM HENDY (afriendoftina)

Any of the above. The main thing is that the image compliments the poem in some way, without making the poem hard to read (as the target for these monthly competitions is social media). It's great if the image is done by the author, but using images freely available (as long as no copyright infringed) is also acceptable. It's more about the end result, the poem and the creativity.
