This image combines the motifs of the skull and the butterfly again against the backdrop of a black
sun. I enjoy destabilising images and here the ultimate lifegiver, our closest star, becomes a point of darkness.
The piece was commissioned by the metal band Rise to Thunder for the cover of their Slagnoramus album. Music is a very important part of my life so it was great that the guys approached me because they liked my work. Album covers have a rich art history of their own and I’m proud to have one of my pieces out there representing the band’s sound.
