I have to admit that I'm not a super big fan of the skull motif craze in art and design today. Having said that, I do really like this illustration of said motif by biddy maroney. The illustration skill in this piece is undeniable but it's the composition and story that truly capture my heart. Lifes circle, the vibrancy of the bird building it's new home in the skull, all create a nice tension and power. Very nicely done!
