Yellow Skull on Red-Striped Pole

Yellow skull on red-striped pole, surreal art by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: Sunshine. This title is a bit surreal now, and relates more directly to an earlier edit of this picture. The image changed a lot over time; I made a new version whenever there was a major shift in my style.

“Sunshine” occurred to me when the skull was yellower previously. But I decided to keep it even if now it seems a bit odd—I like curious juxtapositions like that.

This is the least Gothic and dark this image has been due to the stripy pole and soft colors. It used to be plain black and white with a rusty-looking pole (with no stripes).

There’s a black and white version named Black Sunshine.
