Tuesdays With Tatman #40

The Iron Cross has a sorted and checkered past. Usually one that is misunderstood. Originally, it was used as a military decoration by the Kingdom of Prussia, but it has since gone on to see other organizations put it to use such as the German Armed Forces, bikers, and even a whole slew of current company logos(do an image search for "iron cross logo"). Now it's my turn to try and put a face(?) on a symbol that means so much to so many.

I limited myself to only shapes included in the cross. I know it's a far cry from the original meanings of it's use, but maybe someday we'll award the "Iron Skull Cross" to those artists who show exemplary bravery in the name of skull making. Maybe.....maybe not.

Each Tuesday in the 3.0 year will bring a new Tuesday With Tatman. As a tribute to the Skull Master's astounding feat let's all get creative and try something new(and hopefully skull related).
