My friend Rob Tarbell made this simply amazing piece for me using my stencil. The image is actually made from smoke that is captured on the paper! See more of this type of work as well as his other awesome pieces on his site.

And last but not least I was honored to get a note from Joe Dante (yes, the director of Gremlins and more!) thanking me for promoting his site Trailers From Hell on Skull-A-Day! If you are a film lover and you haven't yet checked it out yet, do yourself a favor and spend some time on there now, it's really a treat.


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. I won't repost items I've received before so be sure to check previous Braincase posts.

Don't forget you can see your items in the sidebar right away if you post them to Flickr and include the tag "skulladay".

That first graffiti skull is the best! :)

Oh, I've found heaps of skull print fabrics in Australia. Maybe they really are more popular here... I made cushions, half with skull print, the other with cow print (my partner is obsessed with cows, as I am with skulls). I should send you a pic!

I've got more fabric cut waiting to be turned into a Summer dress, and some more to turn into a gothic loli style skirt.
