Volume 33: 2022-2023

A digital illustration in which a woman with bluish-gray skin stands, poised to cut the wings off a bright blue and black butterfly. She wears a simple white dress with ruffles along her shoulders, and the skirt is streaked with a deep red. Her eyes are wrapped in bandages, with a dark red seeping through where her eyes would be and beginning to drip down her cheeks. Around her, more of the bright blue butterflies fly around in the dark blue background, slightly illuminating the space around them with their glow.
