Abacrombie Ink is the alias of Brazilian born artist Hugo Silva. Hugo has an immense array of skulls, most of which are embellished with his stylistic stippled approach. His dark creations are reminiscent of arcane drawings in medieval books, possibly related to the realms of the dark arts.

Hugo Silva stipples his work with either real pens or directly onto his Cintiq, a digital format Wacom tablet (at least I think so telling from his WIP photos).

50 Skull Movie Posters

So we figured it was time that we collected a whole bunch of skulls together again and this time we decided on Skull Movie Posters. They are in no specific order and this is not the most comprehensive list of all skull movie posters ever created but we have a fair few to feast your eyes on. Plus we’ve also included the trailers, from Youtube, for each movie (where possible!) so please view at your leisure.

Feel free to send us any skull movie posters that you think should be added and we will add to the skull compendium.  (or add to comment section underneath post). Without further adieu here are 50 of the best Skull Movie Posters!

Skull Hair and Make-up

skull hair styleskull eye make up

It goes without saying that we love a good skull and although we share lots of cool skulls from the art industries we do like to throw random skull-themed stories and other unique skulls we find online, and this skull hair and make-up is deserved of a place on the SAS wall.

The skull haircut is pretty cool and must take some steady hands to execute such creative designs. It’s a pity the hair grows back so quickly, maybe a die hard skull lover would think about getting laser treatment for a permanent look! WARNING: Don’t try that at home kids, but if you do take pics and send them our way!!

The detail in skull make-up is amazing as well! The make-up artists must have incredibly small hands :)

Both these images were found on Facebook are not credited – please comment if you know anything about who these people are! We’ll give them a deserved shout-out.

Skull Artist Announcement – Boneface – Celebrabis Vitae

Boneface_skull_3

Boneface is the next amazing illustrator to join the ranks of our illustrious skull crew for Celebrabis Vitae, the upcoming skull art exhibition opening on Halloween.

His illustrative style is distinctive, with bold colours and strong line work, at the forefront of his creations. His portfolio is diverse as it is brilliant and we can’t wait to see what skull action will unfold when he puts pen to paper for the exhibition. If you want to see more of his work on the SAS blog then be sure to visit here.

Vintage Smut

Vintage_Smut

Vintage Smut. Now there’s a title I never thought we would have on SAS but there it is all the same. I could not help but share this photo from the early 19th Century of a semi nude woman lazing about reading her book. With her companion the skull. Because we all know vintage nudity was naught without a skull.

Transmit and Receive

Skull Sculpture Skull Sculpture transmit and receive Skull Sculpture Skull Sculpture

With heavy detailed creations, human parts and machines one can only compare the work of Transmit and Receive with the late GIger. But where Giger was an airbrush master of nightmares, Transmit would surely have been a worthy acolyte with his unearthly sculptural creations.

Transmit and Receive
has sculptural pieces that exist in the realm of ‘dark arts’ and are reminiscent of archaic shrines from a long forgotten alien culture. After looking at his pieces enough you begin to notice the human form; twisted and freakishly mutated almost beyond recognition but still lingering, holding on to some form of life.

Day of the Living by Live Life Give Life

Day_of_the_Living_Poster

1 ORGAN DONOR CAN SAVE UP TO 7 LIVES

It’s a crazy statistic considering the fact that people don’t donate their organs! Live Life Give Life are a charity encouraging organ donation in the UK and they are launching their next campaign in November called Day of the Living (instead of Day of the Dead). It’s a celebration of the lives saved by organ donation and the generosity of their organ donors. 

Because we see skulls as a celebration of life and because we are all organ donors over here at SAS we wanted to share this amazing project with you in the hope that it inspires you to become an organ donor yourself – seriously, what are you going to do with your organs when you pass – Incinerate them, allow them to decay in the ground, or potentially save a few precious lives?

We are currently in talks with the charity currently and are hoping to get them involved in our art exhibition, Celebrabis Vitae, on the 31st of October (to the 6th November) as the theme for the show is ‘Celebrate Life’ and is a perfect fit for their campaign so if you are in the area please come and show your support.

Inspired by former advocate Gerard and the Mexican Day of the Dead,
in which ancestors are remembered with a vibrant and colourful festival, the Day of

with the same energy, optimism and joy.

Instead of Dia de los Muertos we are celebrating the Dia de los Vivos!
Events will be taking place nationwide from early September, building to the Day of
the Living which takes place on the same day as the Day of the Dead: November 1st.

Pistonhead Lager Sponsor – Celebrabis Vitae

PistonHead Lager

We’ve recently received word that Pistonhead Lager is going to be the official drinks sponsor for Celebrabis Vitae! The upcoming skull art exhibition, taking place at Box Studio in Shoreditch on the 31st October 2014, promises to be a treat for any skull lover and we are super excited to have Pistonhead Lager on board!

We blogged about them a while back, when they were only available in Germany and Australia (I think) , and now they are launching in the UK. Their beautiful skull branding, and great beer taste, means they are the perfect fit for the event, plus they will be supplying beer for both the opening night and also the First Thursday event the following week.

They have been a pleasure to work with and hopefully we will be doing more events with them in the future, fingers crossed :)

Please show them some love by Following them on Twitter and Liking their page on Facebook.

Bone Carving Artisans

In our endeavor to bring skulls to the people we often find a fair amount of carved skulls. It’s now becoming apparent that there is a large community of talented bone carving artisans in Bali.

These hand carved items are often carved into different types of bone including antlers. These particular creations are from the Three Angels Collection. I’m particularly drawn to the skull necklace which is made form antler bone, coconut beads, string and sterling silver caps.

While looking through a wondrous display of illustrations by Shotopop I noticed that there were various skulls dotted about. So in good SAS fashion and needing only a hint of a reason to share their amazing work, please welcome Shotopop.

Shotopop is an illustration agency, a “devout team of visual zealots”. They harbour a dazzling amount of amazing illustration work from tactile to digital. It seems there is no boundaries for great talent.

Artist Announcement – Celebrabis Vitae – Paul Alexander Thornton

paul alexander thornton

More exciting announcements are on the cards as we introduce another corker of a skull artist – Paul Alexander Thornton – to our art exhibition, Celebrabis Vitae, which takes place on the 31st October.

Paul was one of the first artists we blogged out when we started this little skull-loving project, and I am so happy he will be featuring his work at our week-long art exhibit. His pen work is vibrant, detailed and absolutely incredible and I am also looking forward to seeing one in the flesh as great artwork like his is bound to inspire. If you are in London you have to pop by to see it for yourself.

Mr Lister

Mister_Lister_5 Mr_Lister_1 Mr_Lister_2 Mr_Lister_3 Mr_Lister_4

Mr Lister certainly sounds like a busy fellow, being that he’s a graphic designer by day and artist and vinyl toy customiser by night. Like they say, there is no rest for the wicked and in Lister’s case that would be quite apt as many of his works are indeed wicked.

Skull Tattoos by Matt Hunt

The-skull-is-natures-sculpture skull-pixels-ribs skull-inner-arm-squares Skull-in-hexagon skull-fig-13 skull-clocks skull-and-roses-in-blue six-skulls lianne-hand-skull c16092dbaaa3601091f1f225b533a538

These skull tattoos by Matt Hunt have an almost digital aesthetic to them, with regards to composition and layering of elements. Objects often not side by side by side but rather they interweave and overlap. This in turn makes for some interesting results (in a good way).

Matt tattoos from his studio Modern Body Art based in Birmingham, England. If you fancy a great skull and you are in that neck of the woods then visit his website to get booked in.
