“STILL SENDING LOVE” A Short Story Illustration, Sept 2018 Issue of Mensa Bulletin Magazine. This illustration was commissioned for a magazine short story. In summary, the story involves a grieving widower living miserably alone with his deceased wife’s cat. Then letters from his wife begin arriving in the mail. She had lovingly written them while ill and pre-arranged for someone to mail them at certain intervals. Through the letters she guides him through his grieving. The final letter ends the story on a positive note.
I tried to thoughtfully capture this poignant story in one visual image and hope I did it justice. I couldn’t resist illustrating the cat as aware of the wife’s spiritual presence, even though the man is not.
