Momento Mori, Gothic Skeleton & Horse Art, by Sherrie Thai of Shaireproductions.com

“Momento Mori” is Latin for “Remember Death”, which speaks of the transient nature of objects and one’s mortality. I wanted to create a world which celebrates positivity and beauty in all forms, where memories of love exists beyond the confines of time. The original artwork was created with ink, graphite, some of my own photography, and a touch of digital coloring. PRINT AVAILABLE HERE

Momento Mori, Concept Art Sketch

Here are some concept sketches for “Momento Mori”. I wanted to infuse some steampunk elements, but after the rough sketch, decided to add some roses to soften up the image. I’m pretty pleased with how this piece came out as it exhibits an emotional narrative.

Fish Skull

Alligator Skull

Bird Skull

These photos were taken at the California Academy of Sciences Skull Exhibit–incredibly fascinating! I love the semi-smile of the snapping turtle (top) to the sinister grin of the alligator. . . more images to come.
