I've been doing so many pieces for the children's market lately that I thought I'd change it up and do something darker.

This is an editorial illustration about female gang members. It's my 3rd, and probably final, attempt at painting this idea - you may remember this one from a few years ago. It's based on an article I read a long time ago about female gangs. The image is about the loss of individual identity that occurs in favor of gang identity and how the individual's decision to become a member often, ultimately, leads to their death.
