burying your life

illustration and editorial


This short story was about a man dealing with an impending divorce while both parents put on a show for the son to insulate him from what is about to happen. This all takes place on the day the father has to bury the family cat in the back garden. The concept behind this was that the fathers once idealic life was being stripped away from him, while the childs world was about be torn in two. I illustrated this through a literal visual of the tearing of the very pages the story is written on.
