I wanted to depict a light leaving the body, climbing up through the hollow and emptying body. So the body is breaking apart, hollow and black in the mouth and broken off below the neck and the light is bursting from the eyes and the top of the head, climbing out of the person. The image was meant to be interpreted in any way, the imagery reminding me of something ancient passing away. To me it can depict the death of a god or show the soul leaving the body of a mortal.

Ink (ballpoint pen and Sharpie) on light paper.

Born in Northern California, I’ve made and studied art most of my life and my favorite things to make are from darker tones and subjects. Since I was very young I’ve pushed myself through requests, so feel free to ask me for a personal work.
