I want this piece to speak individually to everyone. But to me, There are a few concepts behind the 3 piece suit and top hat wearing Bearded Skull, of a by-gone era.
The main one is in the title. because I think most every artist must wonder about their works' future beyond the artist's own life.
A 'legacy', if you will.
And possibly playing off the myth(?) that hair continues to grow after death.
But I am going to leave the meaning of the top hat, vague on here.
Leaving it up to you. ....
Some people have seen it as 'Gothic',
but I don't see it that way, at All.
I see it as a kinda playful drawing, if a little dark, but that uses the skull to convey something more.
Its not just a skull to be a skull.
And it is the only skull that I've ever included in anything I've done.
