Skull Floating Above Walkway

Skull floating over walkway, surreal art photo by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: Oblique. Purely based on the angle of the skull. And it’s a nice word with alternative suggestive meanings, perfect for a title.

This is a massive revision. I previously did a version in which the colors and composition began to sit badly with me. To the extent I had to either delete it entirely, or redo it.

Often I’ll look back at work and see something I’m not entirely happy with, but it’s a spectrum. As such there’s a certain threshold beyond which I can’t tolerate a piece being out there with my name on it.

Anyway, this works far better than the old one. (At least that’s how I see it now! Though to be fair, I don’t often look back at old work and dislike it to such an extent, but it does happen. On the bright side, it’s indicative of some type of progression, so that’s good.)
