In ‘Frostbite’ I’m exploring alternative ways to convey information. The overarching concept is ‘death by exposure to cold’ with which a straightforward depiction would depict a person frozen to death laying in the snow. In my version I broke this idea down into more purely symbolic elements; to depict the notion of ‘cold’ I have an overall color scheme of blue and white, the background  is actually composed of crystallized patterns caused by freezing, and the little dark blue shapes are inspired by snowflakes. The representation of death is brought about by the overall skull design. At the bottom of the piece is my personal logo composed of my initials CCW.
