“49 Tears Forever” was created in honor of the lives taken in the recent attack at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando.

Unpublished but Never Unappreciated

For one reason or another, we see a number of beautifully executed projects go unpublished. Creative directions change as publishers’ needs change, and while we’d never hold it against them (it is the nature of the business), we can certainly share some of the great projects that don’t quite make it to the finish line.

This latest piece by Jonathan Bartlett was created for “Summer Before the War,” Helen Simonson’s much anticipated follow-up to the best selling “Major Pettigew’s Last Stand”. While it’s always unfortunate to see a project killed, nothing can detract from the fact that this lovely piece was still created.

Take a look at Jonathan’s blog to learn more about his experience.
