[Flashback Friday] 5.27- Medicinal Skulls

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

Today’s flashbacks of the medical nature were both previously posted on this date.

First up from the original project is the Skullmaster with 189. Skull-Aid

Arranged Adhesive Bandages (Approx. 13in x 11in).
This is made up of just under 300 bandages (plasters for you UK folks).

Next from Year 3.0 is Eric Collins an illustrator in NYC, who made this piece called “Death Pill.”

Full Work

E-Merg-N C says:

It is interesting that these two pieces work so well together yet they are separated by two years of posts. I find it facinating how these two pieces represent the double sided coin of medicine. On one side we have the things that could help you and on the other side is something that could hurt you, and don't be so quick to pass judgement on which is which. Some one with latex allergies could be hurt by the bandage, and the pill could be full of bacteria killing antibiotics that may help you.

PS. If you would like to own an original piece of Mr. Collins’ skull work, the piece he created for the Skull Appreciation Exhibit on June 4th this year, “What's Inside”, is still available. Not to be forgotten- The Skullmaster also has some original skull work for sale HERE.

**Flashback Friday was a weekly countdown of the fan selected top 52 skulls of Skull-A-Day 1.0. 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. During year 4.0 the editors had their chance to countdown their favorites Azurafae HERE, Citizen Agent HERE, and Tatman HERE.
