A love that brings despair upon oneself and despise from others. Julie’s drawings are her imagined depictions of true events of nearly a hundred years ago that drove a man beyond the edge of reason over a young woman. This account that Julie illustrates so delicately and hauntingly, is beyond a specific tale, it is a universal allegory for…
