Dia de la Abby

While on vacation in March 2009, I was browsing the art books at a book store, when I came across Noah's Skulls book. I flipped through the pages and was amazed at all the different materials used to make skulls. When I got back home, I found the blog and facebook page. I started following the creations daily and actively commenting. At this point of the project there were submission posts only. In June 2009, Citizen Agent and Tatman started posting weekly skulls that they created. June is also my birth month, for which I celebrated with a huge party. To keep this kid friendly...basically my best friend Kit McSmash gave me the Skulls book that night. Noah Scalin showed up to help me celebrate and also signed the book. I think that was the moment I knew I was meant to be part of the project.

Fast forward to March 2010...After months of getting to know Noah, Citizen Agent and Tatman and participating on the blog by submitting my own skull art, the guys asked me to join the team for the 4.0 year. Citizen Agent came up with the name "Dia de la Abby", because of my obsession with Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).

During the 4.0 year, I, Abby aka Azurafae made 53 skulls (a skull a week) using a variety of mediums including paper, paint, fabric, accessories, clay and food. I like teaching people how to make things, so there are separate tutorials for 27 of 53 skulls. There are some tutorials included with the Dia de la Abby posts.

During the 5.0 year, I made skulls at least once a month. Some of the skulls will also have tutorial. I have included a link to each coordinating tutorial.

From the 6.0 year and beyond, I will share my skull artwork as I create it.
