Murder she wrote

Was recently asked to do a cover for Broward New times (also running in Houston, and Miami) about the enormous amount of murder happening in Puerto Rico the last few years - many things are to blame - largely drugs, and police corruption - but things are out of control, you can be killed for almost no reason. Really wanted to show death being so common its forgotten about / over looked. the cover we landed on was a hybrid of a few ideas i pitched. i tried to get away with not using Puerto Rico's flag - and opted for showing location more, but in the end, it became an essential part of the concept.
