[CONTEST] "Skullface" Book Giveaway

This contest is over.  Thanks to everyone who participated and left a comment.

Heads up, skull lovers, IT'S CONTEST TIME AGAIN!  This week we have an overly awesome compilation of some of the best skull art in the world that has been bound into a book titled "Skullface".  Compiled by Yak El-Droubie, and available at Korero Books, "Skullface" contains almost 200 pages with over 70 contributing artists, including some who have been featured on Skull-A-Day as well.  This mind blowing collection has some of everything and is sure to have something everyone will love.  Just take a look at this sampling.....





"Skullface" is a beautiful hard cover book that measures almost 8 1/2" x 10 1/2" (215mm x 266mm).  That means that each piece of skull art is in amazing color, or black and gray, and large enough to genuinely appreciate.  The winner of this contest will receive one of the books for their very own!   


To be entered in this free contest you are being asked to leave a comment stating your favorite skull artist. There are so many out there these days that we should get a heaping helping of creativity to check out.   Naming one of the Skull-A-Day editors won't increase your chances of winning, but we always appreciate the kind words.

[NOTE: If you're reading this on Facebook or Google+ then be sure to leave your comment on the original Skull-A-Day.com post if you want to be officially entered in the contest.]

IMPORTANT: Don't forget to include a way of contacting you(either an email in the post OR BE SURE your blogger profile has a working email link for you). Entries are only valid with this information.

You have until Midnight Eastern time on August 30th to be entered. 

Note: Yak has agreed to ship to our winner anywhere in the world so here's a global good luck to you all.


Of course you don't have to wait until the end of our contest to ensure that you're a winner.  You can purchase your own copy(or more for friends) here.  Be sure to check out all of the interesting art books they have to offer at Korero Books.  GOOD LUCK!!!

Ooh, want. I have so many favorite skull artists, but since you are making me choose, I'll say Madame Ashley Talbot because her Mutter Museum poster is one of my favorite things.

oh squee! This is right up my alley. My favorite skull artist is Leila from Illustrated Ink. I love her pinup, tattoo-ey sugar skull art.

Richelle Brown said...

Love it! Abril Andrade Griffith would be my favorite skull artist; I love how she makes skull characters wistful.

Travis Brown said...

Tom French. These samples rock, by the way!

Heather Renfro said...

Charles Allan Gilbert. I love All Is Vanity.

Monster Sally said...

I would say my favorite would be Laurie Lipton. What amazes me with her artwork is not only the details and realistic feel, but the media she chooses to work with is the very basic pencil&charcoal on paper.

Zurburan's St. Francis has to be my favorite skull in art ever. I used to spend hours in front of it at the museum as a teenager - I've done drawings of it, animations of it and more...

Philip H. said...

If I would have to chose one, it'd be John Dyer Baizley. There are so many other great artists working with the vanitas-motive, but Baizley's obvious Pushead-influences always dig up some old memories.

Kty Purpl said...

Jeral Tidwell is my favorite !

kerosene said...

What a great book!
I love Mike Egan's work ... and Ali Gulec.

Doug said...

I'm gonna go with Kris Kuksi. I'd love to have an entire home done by him.

Mark Taylor said...

I would say Leila from Illustrated Ink.. the way she uses colour in her artwork of skeletons and skulls is simply amazing... awesome stuff !!

Keren said...

mine is definitely Pushead.

Tommy A said...

I guess of all the skull artists out there im going to have to say I love my own work the best or I would quit doing it. Also It would be very hard to pick a favorite, theyre all unique in there own way.

Kris Kuksi is absolutely one of my favorite skull artists. I love the Rococo style, and his art is so dark and beautiful.

Joe.Ouellet said...

I am a tattoo artist and I love to tattoo skulls, but there are some artists that have done these amazing skull tattoos that I love:
Jeff Gogue
Henry Mrdist Tattoo
Betty Nico
They are not specifically "skull" artists but they have definitely done their share!!

DeftonesGirly said...

Frank Maddocks..all though I wouldn't say he's particularly a "skull artist", he did do my favorite skull piece - the cover to Deftones self titled album. Besides him, I'd say Alton Kelley & Stanley Mouse.

Gotta gold old skool on this one and say pushead

Auntie Karen said...

I'll go back to the classics, the amazing men & women of Oaxaca Mexico and their Dia de Los Moertos folk art. I have loved their work for a long time and am lucky to own some great pieces. The joy and sense of humor is great.

Tero Kaino said...

One of my favourites is Paul Alexander Thornton, awesome ballpen artist.

BEX said...

I've just found your site and I haven't had much time to look through it so apologies to the artists I have not yet seen, but I love the steampunk style skulls of Gabriel Dishaw, My other favourite would be my daughteer's sugar skulls which are brilliant (but then I am biased). I'd love to win - rebecca.mclean@gmail.com

Guzz69 said...

I still love Derek Riggs works for early Iron Maiden album covers. Cheers!

Melissa said...

Phaedra Rieff said...

my favourite skull artists are the nameless masters behind my collection of crystal skulls! i only wish that i knew who they were...

Sam Self said...

I have no real idea who my favourite is but I love my Tatty Devine skull necklace, my sugar skulls and my tattoo done by Paul Naylor of Powerhouse Tattoo so I guess he gets my vote :-) samanthaself@yahoo.co.uk

-mg- said...

Is it fair to suggest that Tibetan tantric art - such as fiery protectors and dancing skeleton figures used with Chod practices - would represent the most beautiful "skull art"?

-mg- said...

Oh, and as a flashback - Rick Griffin, the artist who did cover for Grateful Dead's AOXOMOXOA.
