Drawing of Anthony Bourdain (Memorial)

When I heard the news two days ago of the passing of Anthony Bourdain ( travel writer, celebrity chef), I was shocked and saddened.

I used to watch No Reservations on the Travel channel quite often and really enjoyed it. Anthony was a most beautifully gifted writer, being able to put things into words in a way that enriched the experiences he was speaking of so much. He loved to dine with the rich and the poor alike. I know that he will be so very missed by many people who knew him, including his wife and daughter.

It’s so saddening to know that he was feeling so lost that he resorted to suicide as a way out. So many people would have reached out and been a support system had they known. I wish he hadn’t felt this was the only way.

I decided to draw a portrait of Anthony Bourdain in his memory:

And I have a tribute video of the process of this drawing at the link below.

If you or someone you know is feeling upset, depressed, or feels there is no way out, please call the suicide prevention line at 1-800-273-8255. If you don’t like the idea of speaking out loud, there is a texting service at 741-741. You can call any time of the day or night and they will talk to you and help you.
