The Universe Is in Us is a digitally composed image by Deviant Artist t-abroudj. By altering images from NASA, ESA and the Hubble Heritage Team, Tahar Abroudjameur, created this stunning image of swirling stars and nebulae.
Mario Sabljak, a Vancouver based designer, has a new line of skull based furniture – a skull cabinet and pop-up bar. His design company, Mario Sabljak Design, creates custom hand built furniture and interiors for private and commercial clients.
I love the pop-up bar, for obvious reasons, and it is battery powered which makes it cordless too so you won’t trip over it after a few wet ones.
As always we have this handy linky internet thingy which means you can visit Mario’s website to see more of his designs.
This is Colossal is one of the coolest blogs around. They often blog about art and design and they’ve recently launched their online shop. That’s where I spotted this golden skull sculpture which is available for just $46.
The skull has been created by Chicago-based artists Sarah and Joseph Belknap. Each skull is created one at a time by rotocasting a durable urethane plastic and coated with Montana gold paint.
Dimensions: 7″ x 5″ x 7″.
We get lots of requests about the skull chairs that we post, so much so that if I had a truckload of cash I would open up a store for all the skull chairs I could find. I spotted this futuristic ceramic design on a post dedicated to the best skull chairs found online. I used Google image search to credit the artist/creator but no luck – any ideas? Comment below – thank you please
These cool tote bags were sent in by fellow Skull love, Kayleigh. She designs the tote bags by hand and has started selling them in Edinburgh, Scotland. You can find out more info on her Facebook page – Umeko’s Desk of the Dead.
Graphic artist, Kristy Patterson, loves creating skull designs. It’s apparent in her graphic-styled illustrations, which can be found on Society 6 or Red Bubble, and contain bucket loads of skulls (obviously). It’s one of the reasons we think she rocks
From what I can see, and I’m by no means an expert, her work is a mixture of illustration and digital components. It is extremely vibrant, detailed and uses the glorious skull as the main focal point with supporting elements to compliment or bring the design together.
You can buy her skulls as prints, t-shirts, iPhone cases and iPad covers too. There’s probably more, but don’t see the point in listing them all now…
In my search for some skull action I went searching through the popular skull sites (we are not the only ones of course) and my search took me too Obsessed With Skulls, which is a great skull blog BTW.
This skull was created by 3D artist Meats Meier and I’m assuming it’s some sort of mecahnical device which moves and forms part of a 3D animation sequence – stop me if I’m wrong
This magnificent specimen of an award was created as the trophy for the RGD DesignThinker of the Year Award. The design was completed by Jacknife and explores the central theme of “visually representing the design thinking process” and they used the traditional and rather popular human skull. What a spanking good idea.
Winning this coveted prize means you are pretty much the coolest guy/girl on the planet who has utilised design to drive business success through innovation, problem solving and communication.
Phil Robson –aka Filfury – used his skills in photography and design to create these wonderful images. Check at these bad-boy skull sneakers. They are the business.

This unique creations are Melted Vinyl Skulls by Ted Riederer. Ted, like most of us, is big fan of art and music and he decided to create these skulls by placing a vinyl onto a plaster skull and then melting them so the vinyl shapes itself over the skull nearly perfectly.
The series is titled Primal Sound and more of Ted’s work can be found here.
