Skull Impaled on Needle – Black and White

Skull impaled on a needle hanging by a thread. Surreal black and white art by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: By a Gray Thread. I added the word gray to reflect the lack of color, and also to distinguish it from By a Thread, which is the original and in color.

As I write this it’s been a while since it was created, but the crazy perspective still amuses me. Perhaps it’s as light-hearted and fun as an impaled skull can be. Or my sense of humor is way off.

Still not sure if I want it to be a giant needle or a mini skull. I’m leaning toward the latter, though.
