cranial couture
ink/pencil/photoshop, repeating pattern

I’ve been especially inspired by haute couture lately, what with the fall/winter collections showing up in the tags. The late Alexander McQueen was the designer that really got me interested in haute couture, so the skull is an obvious tribute to him. All the other little detail work was inspired by all sorts of embroidery/beadwork that I saw on garments. The bilateral design is also something I’ve noticed that is very prominent in design right now (fashion or otherwise).

I really want to do more colorways for this pattern, but that will have to wait for another day.
