My Dearest Dead

This sketch is an illustration for a poem written by the fabulous dark fantasy author Philip Lee McCall II. He will have a book of his poetry published in 2010 with this sketch (& 3 others I have created). I will let everyone know when the book is available. Prints available on my website Special thanks to Fae Stock for the Photo Reference

"My Dearest Dead"

Rest thy head
My dearest dead
In white dress
Free from mortal stress

Bloody Mary
Say fare-thee-well
Find sanctuary
In the depths of hell

I was once smitten
By your endless charm
Until the future written
Through passionate harm
Hallelujah some might bay

In addition, dance a fervent jig
As my love doth fade away
Her final place set to dig

Mary, Mary, My Dearest Dead
How your plot shall grow
Upon your gravestone to be said
Malicious Mary sleeps below

Rest, Rest My Dearest Dead
Let the world not trouble thee
Soon enough hearts of dread
Shall meet your fate intimately

Oooh... will she rise from her grave, I wonder? The poem makes her sound a bit less innocent than she looks!
