As I look back, it really surprises me that I haven't included more images with skulls. To be honest, it's simply a piece of imagery that I love to draw or to look at in an artwork. In fact, I often say that I own a lot more shirts with skulls on them than a guy my age should probably have!
I don't have a personal interpretation for what this self-portrait means to me. I like the imagery, although it's not quite what I had in mind when I started the drawing. As is often the case, I took off in a slightly different direction. But as is also often the case, I'm very pleased with the results!
