Per the artist:
This design excited me because I saw it as a chance to do something darker in tone than my usual pop mash ups. I wanted to reflect the depths WW had reached on his journey and go beyond the usual Heisenberg persona. I was trying to show that beyond the hat and glasses, Heisenberg was no longer an adopted persona for Walter but Heisenberg IS Walter and vice versa. The seated Walter – is he looking upon these items, which represent his past sins, with regret? With sorrow? You can’t tell, and this is deliberate. I wanted to riff on the classic ‘throne’ imagery that began Season 5, but rather than the defiant figure shown there this one is crumpled, beaten and worn. Surrounded by darkness, a man alone at the end of his journey.
