I drew this to illustrate a to-be-published short story about a morgue worker who becomes enamoured with a dead girl. I felt his "love" was at least partly based on her incapacity for speech (as her lips were sewn up). Being dead, she couldn't have an inherent personality. This is different from his obnoxious wife. Personally, I prefer my love loud and alive, so it's a good thing I have Bryan. Speaking of which, here is Bryan's awesome manipulation.
