The title of this picture is Char Abscission.
Each artwork has its own idiosyncrasies. In composing this one, there were two particular quirks that were noteworthy, both of which were completely contingent in making the picture gel.
First, the bone’s orientation. Initially it was composed 90º anticlockwise. It seemed to make more sense, the format is portrait, so you might expect more vertical elongation to match. But it was so clear when I tested what you see here that it had to be this way around.
Second, the width of the pinstripe around the circles, which used to be a wider stripe. Again when I tested what you see here, it simply couldn’t be another way. It always tickles me when such a minor change has such a profound impact.
There’s a color version of this picture called Abscission.
