Commission: Present

So I was commissioned late last year to do some drawings for a present for someone’s birthday. The theme was death and beauty the request being a pin up girl who was dead/decaying. It was a lot of fun to draw and a fantastic theme to further explore in future. Not sure of when the birthday was I’ve left it till now so as not to spoil the surprise.

Death and Beauty

 
I did a piece just the other week that had this theme. It was a 50s pin up girl but she had a skull face and bone poking out of her arm and leg and things. It’s a really interesting theme and one I’m very keen to explore further. This is a first (read second) attempt to explore this subject. She’s half flesh, half bone. Part of her has been stripped back to reveal the her within both literally and figuratively. It shows that under the skin we’re all the same.
