Week Fourteen: Scar

Week fourteen’s topic will be Scar. If you enjoy reconstructive surgery, the Chili Peppers, or animated lions based on King Claudius, this topic is for you.

At left is the famous self portrait of Vincent van Gogh following the removal of his earlobe. Aside from self-inflicted damage to his own body, van Gogh displayed many undiagnosable mental and physical ailments that may have exacerbated the emotional scarring he undoubtedly experienced.

Good luck, artists of the blogosphere. Give it away until next Tuesday.
