Braincase III

More terrific submissions this week from around the globe! Check em out... (click on images to enlarge)

Vicky found this cute skull lurking on a coffee cup lid.

Josh discovered this skull on his daughter's pants.

Kira shared this copy of a lovely commissioned painting she made in 2000 and the sad story of how the original was burned up by the new owner in a fit of anger over the end of a relationship. "Alas! Poor Yorik!" indeed.

Mariana took this nice picture in the Paris Catacombs (where I've been twice!). It contains between 5 and 6 million skeletons (arranged by bone!) and is a must see if you're not claustrophobic.

This awesome 8-bit skull was made by Heavy.

Boris sports this neat stylized tattoo on his arm.

Jennifer made this spiffy color theory project in art college.

Jheelan shared this nice collection of skulls/skeletons.

Danilo was inspired by the United Skull of America and United Skull of Europe to make the Skull of Latin America!

Jeff spotted these high-priced skull shoes in San Francisco.

Matt's girlfriend was inspired by Skull-A-Day to make this amazing hanger skull...

...and in turn Matt made this cool autocross "skulmet"!

And Patrick was inspired by Skull-A-Day to make a "Top 10 Skull Tattoos" post on his excellent Inklusion blog!

Thanks again everyone, it's so nice to know that my little project has inspired you in some way. New submissions are always welcome at skull at

And finally a skull themed video treat from a childhood favorite: The Electric Company (via The New York Glob)...

Can you think of a worse symbol than a skull?

Love your work. The Electric Company video reminded me of the Mr Yuck commercials, not really a skull but close. Also I may be an idiot but I cant seem to figure out what your email is for submissions or suggestions. Keep up the great work, I'll be back everyday.

I love the skulls project... Thank you for doing it.

I've only got one skulls entry on my 'blog, at, but they're deliciously cute.

E-mail can be sent to "skull" AT "" Just put the pieces together (without quotes) and add the @ symbol in the middle where the word "AT" is. Sorry to make it tricky, just trying to cut down on spam!

I wonder if Brett Michaels ever saw this as a kid?

All of the skulls are killer!!!
