Your works are always so beautiful, in a relentless detail, softened by your put in colors, but what I love most, in this series (especially in this sign there, mine) is the anamorphic touches, you transposed into your creations is really interesting
“Skull...skull...skull....Well, ignore my mood now ”,,, no I cant ( and I won't) sorry!
Regarding the skulls, it's not a bad thing, it is the misinterpretation that conferred on it, which is spiny ^ ^( eg: like snakes, in Celtic culture, is a representative of the renewal of the perpetual rebirth (molt)...and this is what is frowned upon in the Catholic for example lol (in the kind "regeneration" and "renascence " that was too much in competition with Jesus xD)
For skulls,globally, it certainly represents finiteness, (pretty clever thing, this is what makes life precious, and reminds others of no?) but In a drawing (or sculpture) is a symbol of wisdom, especially if it is joined to a character) and in some cultures, dead or still alive, it is a sacred symbol, and not "mephitic" bad stuff
Also in combination
The balance as you known, is an air sign, and “air” is mobility, lightness, freedom altruism and renewal
I seem to see a dog skull (my other sign, chinese xD) is also very good sign, if you know the correct interpretation
HB, do not lose this habit of telling us what is in your heart, consciously or not, put in full of allegories out of your imagination that is often closer to reality, (souls don't lie) than what we allow to appear
"I read" your drawings more often than I do "look"him; and what I see there; is an extra sensitive person, kindness and incredible generosity, finding equal on his own talent
“Tortured”?...Yeah,”I hope for you”, I mean, it is the sap of the art, the very essence of creation (silent cries and color's tears) the worst thing that could happen to you, would be a b*tchy burn your portfolio's drawing, and the few remaining becomes the subject of plagiarism , then... it is as if you are tearing your life, your story...and your soul, any desire to create disappears with it, like trust you wore in the human race, supposed to be the ones you have to guide in good dog you were,,,In this case, you become worse than ghost, so, please Baby, “still alive” for me
Sorry for this long comment, but I just read your lost, in your last work, and that make my really sad for you, no, you're not "sully" as you said, just a emotive confused...all your charm ^^
Take care of you HB baby, its gonna be a great year (under the Water's "snake"
