Woah, That's Alotta Blood!

An illustration inspired by the story of Lizzie Borden and the gals over at the Stuff You Missed in History Class podcast I've been listening to a lot lately. Check 'em out they are awesome! I went a little crazy with the blood but if you've seen photos of the late Mr. & Mrs. Borden then you know this is not really an exaggeration. And here is a poem, which I recently learned was a falsehood thanks to the aforementioned podcast but is entertaining none the less.
Lizzie Borden took an axe
And gave her mother forty whacks.
When she saw what she had done
She gave her father forty-one.
