About The Art School Deliquents

The prestigious Hopper School of Visual and Performing Arts is home to an eclectic group of friends and their dirty secrets. Behind the curtain and canvas, the rebellious college seniors push the limits of experimentation in any and every way they can: Drug-fueled fantasies. Sketchy nightclub encounters. Late-night graffiti bombing. They’re the adrenaline junkies your parents were terrified of.
There’s Freddie, the suave trust fund baby gone drama kid bad boy, and Victoria, his equally privileged girlfriend with a keen nose for powders and pills; Tyler, the garage band drummer from the bad part of town turned financial aid music aficionado; Mark, his misfit dorm mate, painter by day, vandal by night; Amanda, the gifted dancer on a full-tuition scholarship with a well-kept secret; and Jo, her introverted photography major roomie and with a soft spot for voyeurism. How bad can it all be, right?

On the first night of senior year, Victoria welcomes the gang back to Hopper School of Visual and Performing Arts in her customary way — with an assortment of colorful love pills: one for Freddie, one for Amanda, one for Tyler, one for Jo, one for Mark, and one for her. Within half an hour, they become enveloped in a cloud of collective empathy and multisensory bliss. But what they hoped would be a night of deep conversation turns to one of unexpected intimacy and lust.

    Swallow - Gia Tudoran


    Ladies first. Kenzo Tiger for Amanda, Victoria intoned, planting the cookie cutter figure in Amanda’s palm.

    Ace of Spades for Mark. Thank me later for the colors, she continued, patting Mark on the shoulder.

    Blue Domino for Tyler. You’re going to love this one after last year’s Play Button, she added, with a subtle wink only Tyler caught.

    Yellow Batman for Jo. Don’t worry, it’s a light one, babe. Perfect for firsts, she crooned, handing Jo only half of the logo — at least for now.

    Orange Tesla for Freddie. Come and get it from me, baby, she murmured, gently pulling Freddie by the front of his polo and passing the pill from her tongue to his.

    "Host last. Pink Supreme for moi," she concluded with a smile, popping the tiny brick into her mouth.

    After distributing the pressed pills among the group, Victoria raised her water bottle and motioned for the rest to follow
