skulls and text

I spent some time in Montreal recently, with my son. His interests lay in craniofacial reconstruction, so anything with a face or a skull captures his attention. I messed around with skull images, in drawing and some painting. The drawings use text to create the form of a skull. The metal parts in the images are titanium bits used in reconstructive surgery and the text itself is from a surgical treatise which I pulled from my son’s pile of books.
