Braincase XX

A smörgåsbord of skull submissions! (received 10/29 - 11/4)

Scherke in Germany made this amazing "die-o-rama" for a Halloween party with some friends. He sent my Papercraft Skull along with the invitation and asked everyone to bring in the finished pieces!

Tyrone made this awesome stencil art! In his words, "When I was getting out of the Army we were allowed to sign a brick on the wall as a farewell/rememberance type thing. I was determined to make my mark so I created a stencil from a sticker I purchased and stenciled it in 4 different layers on the wall to make the different shades needed. My brick puts the others to shame easily."

My friend Amy shows off the skull-tastic ornaments by recycling artist Emily Kircher at her store Alchemy in Richmond, VA.

I you haven't been checking out Trailers from Hell (warning: it's a noisy homepage) you should go now. They have amazing trailers from cool old films, with commentary by famous filmmakers. Here's the trailer from one of my all time favorite films (featuring a skull!) with commentary by Edgar Wright, director of Shaun of the Dead...

Thanks again everyone!

Submit your own found/made skulls at the address in the upper right-hand corner of the site. Please be patient it will take around 5-6 weeks for new submissions to be posted. Be sure to include what name and link you would like included and if you found it online a link to the source as well. Also if you're sending tattoos be sure to include the artist's name and location, so we can give them proper credit.
