Bone Idol

I've been drawing a lot of skulls lately. I really like simple graphic concepts everyone understands; the sun, the moon, animals, death, food, sleeping, weird and normal things like that. A few years ago I made some sun and moon prints with the idea that even some long lost tribe could understand what I was doing. I think it's healthy to think about to remind yourself how weird and amazing everything is. Also I think we should reclaim the skull as a motif from all the metal heads, they've had it for too long.

Years and years ago I found this website which talks about the 'death meditation' and I love how it reads like it's been translated from another language. I remember reading this when I lived in Plymouth about 5 years ago and had a big window in my room that got really freaking cold and I could see my own breath. I also like what they say about imagination being reality. Anyone remember Funny Bones... Bones Brigade... Where have all the cool skulls gone?
