Fatal Promise

Original size 8.5x11 2015 Alex Ledante

The working title for this piece was No More Lies and while I still think that is both excellent and appropriate, Fatal Promise just has a more sinister ring to it so that's how it goes

She can't take her boyfriend cheating on her any longer, nor will she let the other girls have him so she is left with the one option... She hushes his protests before finishing her task, for she wants to hear no more lies or pleas for mercy (she has none left) and wants to hear only silence from her unfaithful lover. He will break no more promises to her now...

Speaking of silence, fans of Silence of the Lambs will notice the cameo appearance by Mister Acherontia styx; better known to his friends as the Death's Head Moth
