[BONUS] The Gift of Skulls -Travel Edition

I was given several lovely hand-made skull gifts on my recent travels:

In Sandusky, Ohio my host, Charles T. Mayer not only made a couple of nifty little origami skulls for me...

but he also drew this gorgeous stippled ink portrait of me...


A young friend of his also made this great illustration inspired by the Skull-A-Day exhibition...


And in Philadelphia I was given this cute necklace from Celeste, the daughter of the photographer who was documenting my talk at the Mütter Museum!...


Thanks also to Denny who gave me a skull bracelet he got in Olvera Street in LA and Rich who hosted me in Philly and gave me some vintage matchbook covers with skulls on them!

I was wondering where you got that portrait from. That is awesome! They're all great gifts.

Woah. Great portrait. I just started stippling in my drawing class. That right there, looks scary hard.

Love the origami, necklace, and that great skull illustration, too.
