Creative Surge

I got this idea from my old job. I would look down the line of designers sitting at their desks - all with their "old-school" headphones plugged in listening to music for creative inspiration. The splatters indicate how the music is inspiring the creative right half of the brain!

The head was inspired by day of the dead skulls.

I also love to use texture and pattern to create interesting shapes - kind of like a computer generated collage.



4 colour print.

it looks great and I love your concept, though I have to admit the hypnotic eyes freak me out a little! I can't stop staring at them!

Tough to breath new life, (or death, depending on your viewpoint), into the tired, worn out, skull cliche, but you somehow managed to do it. Very unique, love the line work and inclusion of the brain/headphones. Awesome illo! $5
