331. Bleach(ed) Skull


Bleach Painting on Denim. I started out making a straight forward image and then decided to play a little more with the medium, since some splatter started to happen in the process anyway. Thanks to my friend Carol for suggesting this medium/material and thanks to Phil and Mady who gave me this jacket when I was in Petersburg making the Rock 'N' Skull!

WOW - that sure takes me back...remember the bleach painted Converse high tops??? (wish I still had those shoes!!)
Love the jacket!

The illustration is incredible.

It looks like the Jean Jacket of Turin.

i thought i was clever doing 365 sketches, but this..... fuck me. rock on.

That looks like a skull rising out of the break at the beach. Which, given our recent "incident" in Solana, is kind of ironic(al).

I like the angle of the skull as it emerges from the jacket. Very well done!

Niiiiiiiice! I'm doing 365sketches of a certain character of mine and was afraid I'd never get to 100...but WOW! VERy impressive!

Tatman said...

That beats the hell out of any metal band back patch that I've EVER seen. The way that it seems to be emerging from the splatter is killer!

Kny said...

Super fucking cool... like the others have said.. all about the angle... and of course your illustration and drafting skills are the "dead" on. Been real fun following the blog.

You know, forensically speaking, a skeletonized body means someone's been dead at least 9 months, but a bleached skull indicates at least 12 months. (At least, that's what I taught my undergrads today.)

Nice work!

How much you want for one of those? I need a new denim jacket and would wear that EVERY DAY!!!

Kim said...

I really like this. To me it's reminiscent of the Converge artwork for Jane Doe

#1) Was this done free hand or a stencil?

#2) What sort of things do you have to do to join your bike gang?
