Skull & Wrenches Icon

Scott Lewis is the brains behind the iconify.it website that takes and make icons out of tons of differnt things. His process of turning sketches into simpler, bolder icons is interesting to see. Today he was gracious enough to share his Skull & Wrenches icon with us.



Of course this will be a big hit with any gearheads we have in our audience. Motors, tools, skulls, and flames are all iconic symbols of the now famous chop shops that produce outstanding custom rides that are themselves works of art. I'll bet there's more than one shop out there who would love to have this in their logo. Thanks for letting us display it here, Scott!

p.s. Scott has made this icon available as a free download from his site as well. Get it HERE.

It would have to have the Girl Scout logo somehow. Not sure how they would be crossed...

Mine would probably be a rainbow and a sword...Or if I was drawing it as a graphic design project, I would probably use a flower and a dagger, because it's more iconic and my teacher tends to like more symbolic stuff. :) They both mean pretty much the same thing, though.

Crossed with Wacom tablet pens. I spend copious amounts of time drawing on the computer. :-)

My personal icon would be a flaming skull with a rolling pin and a whisk crossed under it. In case you can't tell, I love to bake!

Thanks for all the great ideas/mods to this icon. I think I might do a few of them just for fun.

If you like these icons and you have an iPhone, I added some free wallpapers using the icons and easy-to-follow instructions on how to use them as your iPhone wallpaper. You can grab them here: http://iconify.it/free-stuff/skull-wallpapers-for-iphone/
