[Flashback Friday] 23. Mr.(Foam) Peanut (Skull)

Welcome to another addition of Flashback Friday.** This year the guest editors, Azurafae, Tatman, and myself, Citizen Agent, are taking turns counting down our personal favorite 17 skulls from the Original 365.25 Year. So please join us as we visit the archives and add our additional commentary on some of the original pieces.

#6: 23. Mr.(Foam) Peanut (Skull)

Fragile C says:

Today’s flashback comes from very early in the project. This is one however that I feel is often overlooked, perhaps it is because it was too early in the year or maybe the material is just too mundane to invoke any passion. I however, find this piece not only brilliantly thought out, but extremely well executed. In this piece, Noah crossed the threshold of getting into more traditional sculpture. Before this point, all of the pieces had either been cut or arranged, and the 3-D work he did was building upon what was already there. This piece was Noah's first attempt at a 3-D skull “ex nihilo” for the project, and because of that this piece is one that comes to mind quickly when I think about the great art that was produced during the original Skull-A-Day. Next week, we move into my Top 5, anyone have any guess of what they may be?

**Flashback Friday was a weekly countdown of the fan selected top 52 skulls of Skull-A-Day 1.o. Each week during year 3.0 The Skullmaster posted the original skull along with some additional commentary in order from lowest to highest rated, with the #1 skull appearing in the last week of year 3.0, all 52 can be found here.
