It has been forty-nine days since forty-nine people were killed at Pulse in Orlando, Florida. An addition fifty-three people were injured.
Pulse is my personal reaction to what was both the deadliest mass shooting and the deadliest queer assault in US history. Forty-nine monarchs spring from a glowing heart in the ink painting. Framing the piece are the names of each person that lost their life. The painting is 42 inches square.
