Braincase XXXX: The Final Braincase!

One final batch of old school submissions before the changeover to the reader driven Skull-A-Day 2.0!

Remember that the submissions policy has changed so
be sure to visit there before sending anything in!

Another interesting one from my friend Julien in Istanbul. He says, "I just bought this weekly satirical 'paper' with this skull on the front page. It's called 'uykusuz' meaning 'sleepless'. It's a liberal paper and they criticize a lot the actual government. You know, the government recently voted a law permitting the wearing of the [head] scarf inside University campuses. So some young women started to attend classes with their scarf. The front page here says : 'Beware ! There are fascists on the campus'"

...he also discovered this cool bit of stencil graffiti!

Moose found this nifty T-shirt on Mech Bot!

Karl pointed out this fun Thinkin' Lincoln comic with a skull punchline!

Leo Bella spotted this Skull-y parking deck!

Jamie's cool tattoo was done by Chris Culverhouse at Images In Ink in Odenville, Alabama!

Nick Sloff discovered a skull in Boo Berry Cereal! And also shared an image of a carved staff he picked up on vacation a few years ago.

Kurt Marquart introduced me to his Girl Monsters (several of which sport cute skull accessories). In fact Abby Cadaver and Betty Bones are already Skull-A-Day fans!

Bonnie-Ann Black took this excellent photo at Père-Lachaise Cemetery in Paris!

Peter Dowker from Quebec, Canada, showed off this lovely piece!

Matlock shared this incredible oyster simulacra from his friend Sparxxx's Myspace page.

Andy Hurtt discovered a sneaky skull hiding in this logo!

Bruce made this excellent bit of type based Flash animation!


Phaedra Vandenbrun in Calgary, Canada mailed me this lovely fabric postcard she made!

Thanks again everyone!

How is the parking deck skully? I'm not seeing it. What am I missing?

I'm with Kaitlen; I even tried looking at it BIG, but still don't see it. Which, when you think about it psycho/philosophically, is pretty ironic. :)
