[CONTEST] Win a Skull Brain from Emilio Garcia

This contest has ended. Thanks to everyone who entered with your comments!

This week's giveaway from Emilio Garcia reminds me of some song lyrics I once heard, "Free your mind and the rest will follow".  By letting the brain take the skull's form he has created the "Skull Brain".  No argument needed for which side is more important, left or right, he shares his entire mind with you in this delightful and anatomically (in)correct work of art.  Never forgetting the true purpose of the skulls we love, to protect the most precious of organs. 


"Emilio Garcia was born in the winter of 1981 near Barcelona, Spain. He has a long career trajectory as freelance art director and visual artist. Since 1999 he has been specializing in motion graphics and multimedia content. His work is published in Taschen Favourite Websites and Web Design Index Books.  Concerned with the digitalization of our society, Emilio saw his culture moving slowly away from the tangible. As reaction to this, he left his multimedia career and embraced the tactile. Drawn to the fascination of plastic, he started a new stage with the Secret Lapo Laboratories, a space for plastic experimentation, where he can give capacity to his artistic restlessness, far away from bits, clicks, databases, and scripts. Out of this desire to make form with his own hands, the Jumping Brain viral was born. " *taken from Emilio's site



Emilio's newest piece is a perfect match for the intelligent group of fans that we have.  The "Skull Brain" takes the gift and makes it the box.  It  replaces the bones with the brains and still maintains the everlasting shape of the casing that we all know.


The entire creation process is documented for viewing on Emilio's Flickr collection.  Be sure to check it out if you want to see how he got from the above to the below.



PRIZE INFO: One (1) Skull Brain measuring 7 x 5.5 x 5 inches resin cast, and comes in the winner's choice of 4 different finishes: PINK: Gloss nitro,  GRAPHITE: Sand textured,  CHROME: Nickel plated, or 24K: Gold plated. 

HOW TO ENTER: Leave a comment below voting for the side of the brain that you feel is more important- Left or Right.  No explanation or argument is required, just a simple left or right will get you entered.  I'm gonna go metaphysical and vote for the inner brain that contains the 3rd all seeing eye, but only I get that vote.  Oh, and Jessica, too.

CONTACT INFO: If you win, we need to contact you. With your comment, please include your email, or make sure your Blogger profile has a working email link for you on it. Entries are only valid with this information.

WHERE TO ENTER: All entries must be made on this blog post, on Skull-A-Day.com. You CANNOT enter this contest by commenting on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+.

CONTEST CLOSES: 11:59:59 PM Eastern Time Wednesday, December 19th.

NUMBER OF WINNERS: One

PRIZE SHIPS: This contest is open to all skull lovers around the world. The minds of the masses must be appeased.

IF YOU DON'T WIN: You can always put your own brain to good use by visiting Emilio's Fine Art Shop.  You can find the Skull Brain and Jumping Brain there with a variety of options.  Thanks again for the chance to free our minds, Emilio!

Please make sure that you include a valid email address or that your blogger profile is linked to a findable email address. I see a few entries that don't have either. If I cannot easily find an email after clicking on your name then I will be forced to choose someone else. I hate to be blunt, but the editors do not have the time to be Sherlock Holmes and investigate entries for emails. Just make sure we can find it easily and you will be good to go. Thank you!
