Book Cover Skull

In case you've never had the pleasure of meeting Tom Sale, aka Pinky Diablo, you can see some of his past work here and here. For today you can check out this small painting on a book cover that he did for a show in Dallas, TX.

Just like the story in a book emerges from the pages and takes shape in yor mind, this skeleton seems to be coming forth from a dark place with a story of it's own. Is the dull red background the seedy lair of an undead skeleton's torturous chambers, or perhaps it's the top of the stairs leading down to Hades inferno? Either way this skeleton looks like it has a story to tell and we're all glad you decided to share it with us, Tom. Thanks again!
