Skull relapse

I've been thinking about skulls again. I know, I thought I was over it too.

From my sketchbook, please pardon the fold. Mammal skulls are endlessly fascinating to me, especially the skulls of mustelids. Weasels, minks, otters, skunks! This one is Lutra canadensis.

I've also been thinking about knots. This little experiment is a sketch of the best Christmas present I've ever gotten: a cast replica of a pink fairy armadillo (Chlamyphorus truncatus) skull. And nestling around it, an imaginary square knot situation.

I also did a proof of that etching I was talking about. More on that soon.
