Into The Darkness....Into The Grave

Process: The Rio Grande Skull

Hello there! Just got back from Baltimore after another fun weekend at Maryland Death Fest.
Before I headed out to Charm City to stalk out John Waters and indulge myself in Tasty Kakes, I recently did a private commission where the themes were centralized over the purchaser's history with the Rio Grande river in the state of Texas. I incorporated a Hokusai tribute element by borrowing his style of waves. This was done as a diptych. I decided not to upload the sliced piece because it would only look good through 2 frames, which I did not have available at the time I shipped the finished project. This piece was done using Canson Artist Series Classic Cream drawing paper, Faber Castell sepia pens, and a Staedler B pencil.
