IF (Illustration Friday) 1/30/15, the topic was Jagged.  The subject matter for this piece came to me pretty quickly.  I'm struggling to keep up with the topics, mostly because I end up picking concepts that require more time than I have.  I've missed several topics over the last few weeks, although I have diligently been trying to complete them when time permits.  For jagged the first thing that came to mind was 'Jagged Little Pill', Alanis Morissette's titular album which debuted in 1995.  I wanted to depict a universally recognizable pill bottle, and literally represent the 'jagged' pill associated with the album's title.  I had a hard time finding resource material that represented something jagged, especially in pill form, because most representations just looked like broken pills instead a jagged one.  I ended up choosing a triangular shape since it had edges which in some ways could be considered jagged.  The piece is entirely digital done in Painter.
