Welcome to another addition of Flashback Friday.** This year the guest editors, Citizen Agent, Azurafae, and myself, Tatman, are taking turns counting down our personal favorite 17 skulls from the Original 365.25 Year. So please join us as we visit the archives and add our additional commentary on some of the original pieces.
14. #330 Bent Objects Skull
I discovered Terry Border's Bent Objects blog around the same time that Skull-A-Day entered my life so I always relate the two together. It seems that the two blogs have a lot of overlapping fans. We all love Terry's art here at Skull-A-Day so you can imagine my extreme pleasure the day that Noah posted this beauty. Like a tale straight from the mind of Scorsese, Mustard has had enough of Ketchup's popularity and the unwanted attention from the fast food moguls is enough to make the condiment family pull the plug on the pretty boy of the bunch. No more late night dips with the French fries, no more cameo appearances in the fancy sauces that he loved to lavish in.
Terry's ingenuity in making everyday objects come to life is a strong rival to the Skull Master's ability to create skulls out of just about anything. Like two powerful minds melding from different points of the spectrum, the Bent Objects Skull brings out the best in blog creativity. Plus, a skull painted in ketchup is just the right color for the gruesome bloodiness that most people expect in skull artworks so you know it's a winner. Be sure to check out the original post for a close up detail shot of the actual ketchup skull here.
**Flashback Friday was a weekly countdown of the fan selected top 52 skulls of Skull-A-Day 1.0. Each week during year 3.0 The Skullmaster posted the original skull along with some additional commentary in order from lowest to highest rated, with the #1 skull appearing in the last week of year 3.0, all 52 can be found here.
