I love seeing how people use my free downloads for their own projects!

Great Ghosts

I love seeing the things I've created get repurposed and this new video from James Yorkston is a great example of what can be done with the various freebies that I've shared over the years! Check out a few frames from the video featuring my Skullphabet, Ornamental Skull Wallpaper, and Skull Love Stencil and then watch the entire animated video below...

Skull Love

One of my favorite things is to discover how people have used the things I've given away for free on this site. Recently I developed an Instagram friendship with Registered Artist after I discovered that he had created a stencil out of my Psychedelic Skull. This week he shared a couple of shots of another stencil based on my work. It's an image I created to promote Skull Appreciation Day 2012 in Philadelphia, which you can download as a free stencil to use yourself HERE. He's painting it support my currently running Kickstarter to created a book of all 365 skulls from my original project! If you haven't already please check it out HERE. And see more of Registered Artist on Instagram HERE and Facebook HERE.

Skull Street Art

Registeredartist is a street artist. He created his large skulls piece in Miami, last year. He also turned Noah's 347. Skulledelic into a stencil, which he used to spray paint the image. I love street art like his. It often brightens up dark places, and brings some unexpected whimsy. You can see more of his work on Instagram.

[BONUS] Cross-Stitch Skull In-Use

Denise Niemann from Katy TX used the Cross-Stitch Skull pattern to crochet this skull. I love seeing someone take a pattern for one type of fiber art for a different type of fiber art. Cross-stitch is done using a grid pattern. Some types of crochet and knit use the same type of grid, so those patterns can cross over, depending on how they are designed. Got to admit, I might try using filet crochet (my favorite) to make this image too. In case you are curious, Denise's piece looks like intarsia crochet, which is difficult and creates these impressive results.

[BONUS] Skullflake In-Use

Mavis Hansen of Santa Barbara, CA, "made this t shirt using your skullflake pattern and bleach." It's rare that I get to see in-use submissions using my own work. I made a Skullflake and wrote the tutorial for it, a couple years ago. I've seen a few people cut their own, which is great. Seeing someone use their skullflake past the cutting stage, makes it extra special. This is a great use of the lacy Skullflake, and makes me think of what else it can be use for, other than window decoration. If you've made anything using one of my Dia de la Abby tutorials, or the Free Stuff, make sure you submit it to us! We'd love to share it here!

[BONUS] Skull Cross-Stitch In-Use

Marcy found the "freebie cross stitch pattern awhile back and finally got around to stitching it." I love this creation of the cross stitch pattern. The additions of the stained fabric, trim, tassel, and spiders gives it a vintage Halloween feel. This would be a great decoration. I can also see this being made smaller for a pendant necklace. We love seeing what you all with the available Free Stuff. If you create something using any of the Free Stuff, or original skull artwork, please submit it to us! We'd love the share it!

St Mary created these Halloween party invites using the Skullphabet #1 and Quoth the Skull. We love seeing what people create with the Free Stuff available on our blog. This party looks like it will be a lot of fun. Might I suggest a zombie race or "brain" eating competition as games? We love Halloween around here. If you make something awesome and skull related this Halloween (or have something from past ones) please submit it to us! We'd love to share your skully creations!

[BONUS] Deer Approved iPhone Skull Case

Marzi Pecen is a friend to deer, a small terry cloth Monkey, and Skull-A-Day. She bought one of Noah's 60. Flower Skull iPhone cases, and let the sweet Snowflake test it out.

This video proves the durability of this case.

For reference, this is what this case looks like...not being handled by a deer.

[BONUS] Cross-Stitch Skull In-Use

EJ Justice in Georgia, use Noah's 258. Cross-Stitch Skull to needlepoint a Christmas gift for a dear friend.

We received this submission a while ago, but it got lost in the shuffle of regular submissions. She mentioned at the time of submission, "Now I'm looking for an old clock or barometer, with a convex glass face, that we can use to frame it for the appropriate amount of leer." I'm hoping she found that, as it would give an extra eeriness to it!

We love seeing what people create using our available Free Stuff. If you make something using something from the Free Stuff section of Skull-A-Day, please submit it to us! We'd love to share it!

[BONUS] Skullphabet #1 In-Use with Woodwork

Crystal, used the Skullphabet #1 to form her name with woodwork.

The finished piece

In the process of painting it

This font and the Skullphabet #2 are very intricate. I'm impressed that she carved her name using this font, into wood. The painting is also very precise and gives a nice contrast, so the font elements...letters and skulls...stand out.

We love seeing what people create using our available Free Stuff. If you make something using something from the Free Stuff section of Skull-A-Day, please submit it to us! We'd love to share it!

[BONUS] Paint by Numbers Skull In-Use

Anne Williams Gilardi of Pompton Lakes, NJ, used Noah's 167. Skull By Numbers to paint this skull.

This is a great painting! This is probably one of hardest available projects. I haven't see many people attempt it, so congrats to Anne for completing it well!

[BONUS] Papercraft Skulls In-Use

Melanie Church is "a librarian at Greenlease Library at Rockhurst University in Kansas City, MO. I found your papercraft skull online and thought it would be perfect for the spooky side of our fall book display. The student assistants who work at the circulation desk had a lot of fun making these. They were an even bigger hit than the hand-turkeys we made the week before."

We love seeing the Papercraft Skull being used! This festive Autumn display of papercraft skulls, origami frogs, much approved scary books, and other seasonal artwork is great! I'm glad the student assistants enjoyed making them and the response was so good.

If any of you has made anything using the Free Stuff on our blog, please submit it to us! We love seeing what you all create, and want to share it!

[BONUS] Skull Stencils In Use

Over the past few months, lots of you all have been submitting In Use photos of Noah's stencils. Here is a round up of those submission.

Antti Siitari from Finland, used the #9 Skull Stencil on the amp for an electric guitar.

 Marty Busch also used the #9 Skull Stencil. He explained, "I've used the skull stencil on a lot of stuff, really killer stencil! But last month (June 2012) I used it among other stuff on the doors of my '49 Ford F-1 pickup. Built it from scratch... Used the skull, with the lettering on one, used same but different stencil for star - it's all spray paint. Took about 3 hours with an xacto knife to cut both out, but check it out! Turned out good."

Russell Jones used the #9 Skull Stencil on a t-shirt. He "took a short class in screen printing and here is a couple of photos of one of the t-shirts I made.  Kind of prototype at the moment but I think they came out ok."

Avery Dennis used multiple stencils to decorate a skateboard (skullboard?). He used the #9 Skull Stencil, #232 Stylized Stencil Skull, and #38. Quoth the Skull cut out.

Jessica Boudreaux used the #232 Stylized Stencil Skull to adorn a t-shirt.

Stacy Asher, Wisconsin said, "I loved the 'I Heart Skulls' stencil (Skull Appreciation Day Stencil) that you put out over the summer. I had been looking for the perfect place to put it when I realized that I could combine my 2 favorite things. Making quilts and collecting skulls. So this was my result."

We love seeing how you all use the Free Stuff that is available on Skull-A-Day. As you can see, there is always a great variety of ways to use the different skulls we offer. If you have made something using any of the Free Stuff skulls, please submit it to us

[BONUS] Skulledelic Tattoo

Check out this amazing version of my 347. Skulledelic image that Thomas put on his arm with the help of tattoo artist Micha from Ink & Pain in Leipzig, Germany!

You might also recognize this skull from the album cover for my band's vinyl release AND a lovely sweater by Sibling.

I'm always excited when my work becomes a permanent part of someone's body and I'm glad to add Thomas to the elite ranks of Skull-A-Day tattooed including our editor Abby, who has my Quoth The Skull on her arm;  Deacon who got my Ornamental skull on his back; Denis who got a skull I drew for him when I signed his copy of my book Skulls; Kevin, GlobGlob & Drew who used the Skullphabet for their tattoos; Katrina who had a tattoo designed for her by Skull-A-Day fans; Danny who got the Rorschach Skull; Tammie who got my Acorn Skull; and of course Tatman and myself! Any other Skull-A-Day tattoos out there I don't know about?
