Innanför kraniet - teckningen Intrakraniell

Beneath the scull - drawing Intracranial

The surface may be important as a first impression, but what lurks on the inside is always more interesting. When I draw, I always think about what could be hiding under the outer facade and perhaps above all what could not possibly be there. What could be a really interesting story? As I sit there with the pen, a series of "what ifs" begin to creep into my train of thought.

The skull is a constantly recurring symbol in the imagery of death and transience, but death is also part of a cycle. Someone's death is literally someone else's salvation.

The question is, is this creation dead, alive, or possibly something in between? Maybe it's Schrödinger's octopus?
