The Five Stages of Mourning

Yet another piece done for a thread on the Drawing Board. The theme for this month's "Girls" jam is "The Five Stages of Mourning" (denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance). I actually did this a few weeks back and have been sitting on it until the jam started.

Obviously I chose to illustrate the Five Stages using my ever recurring character, Jennifer. Her little pal Bueno apparently sat this one out. Enjoy!

I didn't want to think you did this piece without telling me. I MEAN WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE, ASS?!?! I would give ANYTHING to make you go back and tell me. ANYTHING. Now I just live a dull, meaningless, and worthless life. I exist. Nothing more. But I'll get over it. Nice Piece(s)!

Thanks for the comments, which are always appreciated.

dick!: I didn't realize seeing advance artwork from me was that vital to your daily existence. If it's any consolation, I personally got to see the art as soon as I finished it, and that fact really hasn't affected my life for good or ill, so I don't think you missed out on much with the extra month's wait.

I will assume that you got the joke, but because of the last comment, I'll clarify that I was "acting" (read:typing) out the 5 stages. I'm so clever? Maybe?

Well, well, well. Slap a shell on my back and call me slow! While obviously I knew your comment wasn't serious, I didn't even catch that you went through the five stages. What can I say. It was a long day at work, and after work is when I saw it. That is my excuse. I get it now though. For really!

Hi, I'm just a random person on the internet who you will never know or see or even hear from again.
But just thought I'd say; Awesome work. Really like it. Keep it up.
