Inspired Skulls

To finish up a week full of festivities here are another pair of artists who have been inspired by the Day of the Dead genre.

First up is Jim Traub who sent us a picture of his paper mache painted skull.

Next is Serena who made these skulls out of clay. She said: “My friend, Gemma, is an art teacher and runs this as a project with her students. The pieces are inspired by Day of the Dead celebrations but seem to develop their own personalities during modelling and painting.”

She explained: “my first attempt ‘Tourettes”, to reflect the amount of foul language I used while making him.”

and “the other ‘Slim’ after the cool skinner in Of Mice and Men. He's a much more confident piece. I cut a clay tile and built him on top I think he looks all sexy in his jewel encrusted hat.”

Thank you both for submitting these wonderful pieces of inspired artwork. We never tire of seeing all the many different mediums in which people are inspired to work with. Although winter doesn't officially start for another 7 weeks, I am sad to see the unofficial end to fall this week. Looking forward to seeing all the next round of seasonally inspired projects that our loyal readers have to offer.
