Whilst perusing the net for a skull I found that Herbie the famous beetle has a darker side. Ok I made that up but I have a feeling this may be what the artist was intending, a kinda darker and filthier Herbie. This illustration was created by Arthur d’ ARAUJO and is also featured as a part of a bigger composition featuring a sexy rock chick.
Both of these skulls are available as prints and other products on Society 6

This series of skull screen prints is by artist Bastardilla. Each print is a two-colour screen print with a layer of glitter and spray varnish. They are part of a limited edition of 10 with dimensions of 55cmx55cm. The prints were made during the Fame Festival in 2010.
These skull screen prints can be bought from Studio Cromie for $150 each.
Tim McDonagh has a lovely portfolio bursting with warm and detailed illustrations and as luck would have it he has some dark skull figures as well. One of these skull characters is called Lady of the Flowers (2nd image) and can be purchased as a print from Thumbtack Press starting at $19.99.
McDonagh has the kind of work that the more I look at it the more I appreciate the insane detail. I recommend checking out his blog as he uploads loads of process images which are a pleasure to look at as I love when artist do this kind of thing. The last illustration called ‘Don’t Feed The Birds’ may not have a skull (well there is a tiny one) but I’m posting it here as it’s available for £180 as an original A2 ink illustration. That is amazing. Buy it you can.
Here is another magnificent skull print by God Machine.
Here is the description from God Machine’s online shop:
It is said that Lilith was created at the same time as Adam like an equal, unlike Eve who was made from Adams rib. Lilith refused to be subservient to Adam because she was a strong and proud women. God sent angels to capture her and force her back into the garden of Eden. She refused and vowed her revenge. It is said that you can hear Lilith cries at night, in the wind and in the cries of the animals in the dark. Lilith was also thought to mean ‘Owl’.”
Limited Edition of 75
Each one Signed and numbered.

We recently stumbled upon some cool vector and photoshop illustrations featuring skulls by Joe Murtagh and one of his skull creations even has a tash, nicely timed for ol Movember. I shall contribute my ‘mocha stained’ upper lip. When I say he loves skull I certainly mean it as they are all over the place.
You can purchase various prints of Murtaghs on Society 6.
We featured Godmachine a couple of weeks back and now I have the pleasure of sharing one of his skull prints I recently bought called Monk. This A2 screen print is currently sold out but be sure to follow Godmachine on Facebook or sign up to his newsletter to make sure you are in the know!
This is one of our earlier skull prints available to buy through the Street Anatomy store. The print is called ‘Closer’ and features 2 skulls facing each other framed in a heart.
The illustration was inspired by ONE, where two skulls become one, which Street Anatomy liked so much they approached us to produce a limited edition print to sell exclusively through their online shop. We happily obliged.
The skulls used in ONE, the original idea, were created using water based paints which created a washed out feel and we struggled to capture the detail when printing. D2G recreated the skull print illustration from scratch using graphite and digital colouring.
The print is giclee printed on Matt Litho Realistic paper which is really smooth, like compressed chalk, and holds the colour really well. Pixley Print House are the talent behind the printing.
CLOSER is limited to 20 prints.
Prints are $40 each
*The third image is what the print looks like when framed – we’ve cut it down into a square to fit the frame.

The colours are more punchy than the above photo as the light was quite cold.

These skull illustrations from Mathis Rekowski are only a glimpse inside his crazy and courful mind. Yes some of them feature skulls hidden away but they stil have skulls! The first skull below, called Pick Me Up was initially created for a contemporary art fair in London where you could purchase some limited edition prints. Not sure how this design can now sell as ‘On Demand’ if it was limited edition but it’s an awesome skull all the same.
