This is a photographic image, showing what happens when Apples decay. The use of dark background, dark lighting and dark surface that contrasts with the green decaying apple emphasises a sort of death theme in this image. As decay symbolises death.

this picture is surreal because it is showing a teen loosing pieces from his face. This shows that he is either dying or falling apart. I choose this picture because it is the most satisfying and surreal one i could find. - Jorge Figueroa Block D.

"Bloody Empire" ~ Timorous Beasties. This is a very contemporary piece of wallpaper. There is a variety of colours in this piece and there is some rivalry between the colours. The red and blue are shrouded by the bold yellow of the bumblebee. There is an organic feel to this wallpaper as the plants surround the insect creating a modern and natural idea to the wallpaper.

I'm going to use this as my template for my 'amused to death' skull.
