An abnormal or irrational fear of doctors or going to the doctor.
Besides from the direct personal meaning this has to me (see my comment below), it can also be interpreted in two other ways, depending on whether you see the symbolism and allusions
I think it's more "mixed media" than "photomanipulation" because although it contains photographed parts, it's based on a drawing, contains 2 "traditional paintings" and the background and textures are painted with watercolors and acrylics too. And I've also painted digitally over the whole thing.
This work is actually the reason I haven't submitted anything new for a whole year, as I had to practice a lot for all the techniques I used.
I didn't use any stock (I never do), but I used reference material (medical illustrations) to draw the skull. And that's my own face by the way
Any comments are welcome! If you think it sucks, tell me why!
I'm still not completely happy with my work here so please help me improve it ^^
