With a Noose Around My Neck

Recently did this graphic for The Devil Wears Prada, I'm pretty sure I like how it came out. It should be for sale at their merch table as you read this, on their current tour with As I Lay Dying. Hopefully it printed well! It has a back graphic too, but it's just a type treatment so I won't bother posting it. The front is really where it's at. The art is actually loosely based on the true story of a man named John Babbacombe Lee - an Englishman who was sentenced to hang in 1885 for the murder of his elderly employer, but because of gallows malfunctions three separate times, he survived his sentence. He eventually made his way to America, supposedly made money off his story, and died sometime in the first half of the 20th century. I just liked the story so I based the art off it. Hope you dig it.
