This piece was a sombre one for the Globe and Mail weekend edition. A woman who lost her husband to cancer quite suddenly and very young (36), details her experience with loss, grief, and widowhood.

I wanted to capture a mood and a tangibility that I felt were representitive of how the piece was written, so I relied more heavily on the pencil, and only added the fields colour digitally afterwards. It's been a while since I've had what I would call "original" drawings for an assignment.

Thanks to AD Bryan Gee for collaborating with me on this is such a short amount of time.
