I probably should have saved this one for Halloween or Day of the Dead. Like most kids, I remember Day of the Dead for sugar skulls. This is exactly what it sounds like, sugar with a gruesome factor which made it even better.
I have no idea where the skulls and death masks in this doodle came from, but I like them.
I flip paper around a lot when I am doodling, so there really is not a specific orientation. It doesn't matter as much with abstract images. The skull images make it seem like it ought to have one. If it did, I think this doodle would be flipped 90 degrees, but if I do that, the image was much too small.
So, crane your neck if it bugs you, or just flip your laptop.
