Again, out of sequence. This one was a remake of someone else's design on Threadless, as part of a community-based contest entitled, surprise surprise, Remake. It was really fun to do: different in terms of trying to rework someone else's actual piece while adding your own twist.
These new ones I'll be posting are slightly out of sequence from the order they came into existence. You wouldn't know that, but now...well...you do.
This one was inspired by the old phrase "Dance with Death". I took it to be something literal (an actual 'dance'). While I was describing to my buddy how I was going to draw it, he said "You know...this reminds me of a poem by Oscar Wilde called 'The Harlot's House'". I'd never read it before, but after reading it, I must agree: it is very reminiscent of the poem.
Here's a link to the poetry for all of you who are as lazy as I am.
