Description

In my 'Black Classics' series, I follow the design format of the Penguin paperback classics, so that each painting has the title of the book and the author in the lower section, and then an image that relates to the book above. The text and layout are distorted - in most of my paintings now, I try to find a balance of painterly chaos and clean design.

I'm also just a big fan of skulls, a recurring favourite image for artists, going back (at least) centuries.

Please note that the painting has painted sides, and is ready to hang without framing.
