Beneath it all a skull

I grew up in the 70’s and 80’s. I lived in Greece for a while and what I remember from that time entertainment wise was Horror movies. Back in the US my major entertainment was once again horror movies. Of all the horror movies I really loved the cheesy thrillers put out by Hammer Film Productions. I can not lie, their movies play a big part in some of my work. About a week ago I was bored and playing around with a mask my brother bought me. As I played around with some ideas I decided to place a glow in the dark skull I had behind the mask. Next thing I know I’m painting the skull, sanding it and sticking a glass eye into it! Tonight I put it all tonight I put all together and shot the piece below. I believe it expresses the Hammer Films flavor. Skull_beneath_sm
