Oodles of Worldwide Submissions! (received November 26 - December 2)

Daniel caught his boyfriend making this cool tag on his car!

Deena B. spotted this great graffiti in Glasgow, Scotland while visiting from California!

B13 spotted an eerie image in the top right of this photo he found online.

Lisa showed off the logo and a floor mosaic by Reed Garland from her favorite dive bar in Washington DC: Jimmy Valentine's Loney Hearts Club!

My friend Phil snapped this awesome pic driving on Highway 301 in Delawar near Port Penn.

Mim spotted these crystal studded skull items in a Vercy Village shop in Paris.

...and this odd display outside of a restaurant on the Left Bank in Paris!

Drew shared this nifty photo of his bar from his holiday party invite!

The folks at Monstar showed off their keen T-shirt designs!

Tatman made this terrific spirograph using Qbesq!

FX artist Christian Hansen made this absolutely fantastic sculpture!

Dennis showed off his skulltastic living room!

Phoebe in South Korea sent in the image of her super cute tattoo!

Senhor Leo discovered this sneaky skull hiding on his cell phone!

Damon at Headstone City showed off his excellent horror themed T-shirts!

Moose pointed out this intriguing tutorial on perception, which includes several skull examples, including this Dior ad!

Eric Reinertson did a really nice job working with the Skullphabet skull in MS Paint!

A request from Peter Ha: "This is random question/request, but is there any way you could post something on the site asking if any Londoners could snap a photo in Westminster Abbey of a carving in one of the walls of a tomb of a skull/wings/hourglass. It's fairly relevant to the site and would help me from spending a grand to get back there to take the photo myself. Thanks, man. The site fuels my obsession/addiction. Heh." How 'bout it folks?

And finally another terrific skull themed trailer from Trailers from Hell, this time for Carnage, with commentary by Edgar Wright (Shaun of The Dead)...

Thanks again everyone!


You are welcome to submit your own found/made skulls at the address in the upper right-hand corner of the site. But please read the following FIRST:

1. Be sure to include your name as you would like it to appear on the site.
2. Let me know if there is a website you would like YOUR name linked to.
3. I would prefer if you made or took the images yourself.
4. If you find the image online you MUST do the following or it will not be included:
  • Do NOT send just a direct link to an image file (jpeg, gif, png, etc.).
  • Attach the actual image in the e-mail.
  • Give the name of the original artist (and a link to that artists' work if available).
  • Provide a link to a web page where the art came from (if it wasn't directly from the artist's site)
5. If you are sending an image of your own tattoos be sure to include the artist's name, location, and website (if available) so I can give them proper credit.
6. I won't repost items I've received before so be sure to check previous Braincase posts.
7. Please be patient it will take around 5-6 weeks for new submissions to be posted.
8. Don't forget you can see your items in the sidebar right away if you post them to Flickr and include the tag "skulladay".
