On the surface level this started out with a simple challenge of making something with only the rectangle tool and a skull seemed like a good idea. Skulls are common subject ofcourse but I think i got an imprint from our visit to the Repin institute in St.Petersburg, Russia. The anatomy classroom was quite an experience. When remains of a real human being are studied for art it seems kind of unnerving at first but then i imagine it would also very devout, and sacred even. We didn't actually see that process happen, just drawings which were powerful on their own. I imagine that i wanted to make a connection to the traditional with the subject matter using digital tools. As i recall i was onto questions like how something continues to live in art and what is the meaning of digital art with endless replicating possibilities. I think we have come to an interesting point with this one as it is put into the blockchain as NFT.

The original drawing was made with Windows Paint in 2009.
I have now restored and scaled up that image to be made into a limited edition of 1.
