Title: Ice Cream II. Nothing literal about this title, it’s sheer poetic juxtaposition.
Actually, it’s based on a reaction. I showed the first image with this name to someone, and bizarrely they said it reminded them of ice cream. Seeing as it was a skull impaled on a pole, that amused me, so I used it as a title.
This is the same skull but with no pole through it, and a pink background instead of a blue one.
This image is another of the first color pieces I did after a protracted black and white stint. The black and white work was quite grim, and I wanted a change from that. I really like the idea of undermining the grimness of skull images with soft pastel colors, of the sort you might find a nursery painted in for instance.
