Skull Attack

Back in my wilder, younger, biker days I was very fond of a local beer, Brain’s S.A., fondly nicknamed Skull Attack. Now I’m older and wiser (?!) I like to use skulls in the development of my artwork. I’ve been at Wingtip Press in Boise, Idaho, collaborating with a group of artists to develop a body of full-color monotypes and I’ve been using my drawings of skulls as my subject.

This sequence shows the development of the three-stage process, beginning with a yellow plate, which is then overlaid with a red plate….

…..and finally a blue plate, giving a wide range of colours. The method also produces a secondary ‘ghost’ image…..

    Skulls offer such wonderful shapes – I have a collection of animal skulls that regularly appear in my drawings, in part or whole, often abstracted.

  2. I love the skull drawing. Great detail.
