City Skull

Josh Damaso submitted this skull drawing to us.



I love the smoky shading of this skull piece. With the motif, it reminds me of the many burned out cities from wars and the occasional cow. I was looking at old historic photos of Richmond from when it too was burned out in areas. I had never seen the photos before, but I'm aware of the fact it burned during the Civil War. It's interesting to see the old photos compared to current ones, where newer building stand in their place.

Cities yes. I am not sure where the cows come in, but I'll go with it.

Along with wars causing cities to burn, there is the story of how a cow started the Chicago city fire.
