Chronogram

Last week I did a piece for Chronogram Magazine. It was for a fictional story about a young woman who kills her fanatical mother in order to gain some stability and love in her life. The girl does the deed with a frying pan and buries her in the garden she shares with her new fiance. A crop of forget-me-nots grows where the body is buried and no one is ever the wiser. The editor wanted to stay away from alluding to the mother’s death; instead, he just wanted to use the most prominent symbolism, being the flowers and frying pan, in order to keep the piece simple and abstract.

Update: I was asked to do some handwritten text for the title of the story. I did a few different sets and I’m not sure which one they went with, but here is one of them with the illustration.
