Illustration created for SAD Mag's Death Issue.
The concept of death has inspired diverse ruminations from all walks of life throughout multiple expanses of human history - from casual, everyday conversations, to thousand-page, philosophical treatises. This issue SAD Mag has taken on the challenge of understanding death in new ways, reframing our preconceived notions by exploring its varied manifestations.
SAD Mag is a publication based in Vancouver, Canada that focuses on promoting literacy, writing, art, and public discourse among emerging artists in Vancouver.

Final printed magazine! It's beautiful to see things in print. You can find a copy at select Indigo locations or independent book/print stores across Canada, and online at Sadmag.ca.
