Interior room scene. A male figure in profile is seated at an artist's table. He has a cigarette in his proper right hand and is drawing with his left hand. There is a skull with brushes coming out of the top, sitting next to the man. There is an upside down gun that seems to be floating in the top left quadrant. There is a window behind the man, which looks out at a wall with a window.
