Full Article and Video Here // Excerpt Below

by Jeff Scher

Wide-eyed and always smiling, skulls are the most recognizable bone(s) in your body and easily the scariest. They once whispered, kissed and dreamed, just like us, but now, the life is gone, the soul inside vanished and only a generic symbol of death remains. “Memento Mickey” is a Halloween memento mori. Latin for “remember you will die,” it is also a genre of art that uses death to remind the viewer that life is indeed fleeting.
