We were recently contacted by the talented Nicola Murray De Jager, a fellow South African artist with a passion for creating great embroidered skulls. Nicola creates these uniquely beautiful skulls and sells them under the name of Calavera.
These embroidered skulls are available in mainly two sizes, that being medium ( W305mm H350mm) and Large (W380 H450). Each finished skull is then placed in a drop box frame behind glass. As you can tell from the images the frames have an unusual elliptical opening that looks really good. International orders are posted without glass but the frames are designed in such a way that the back can be removed, the glass cut to size and then placed inside on a specifically routed ledge.
Visit the Calavera website to contact Nicola with regards to prices and bespoke sizes.
Here are two damn delicious looking skulls (skull figured) from illustrator John Filipe that are both available as various sized prints from Society6. These prints are Giclee quality and being Society 6 these designs are also available on a variety of other products like canvas, t-shirts, i-Phone covers…the list goes on.
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.
I definitely want to collage some skull after seeing these beauties. Yes I may use left over Chicken Cottage wrappers but I shall try! These skillfully papered skulls can be found online as a part of the RARA Collective, which can be viewed at Saatchi Online.
Various size prints of these skulls are for sale varying from $17-$149
Some lovely little Day of the Dead skulls. I particularly love the melting skull, reminds me of the guys face in Robocop after acid gets poured on him. Images courtesy of Dress Up Days, yet another domain name that has not been updated so the link only takes you to a holding page.
We found these colourful “Rainbow Skulls” over at MF Joes blog. At first I thought they were computer rendered skulls, but they are plastic replicas that have been ‘spin’ painted. Upon further investigation I read this article at Newsfeed and found out that these gaudy skulls are to be available for purchase with what appears to be a minimum £36,800 price tag from the gift shop at The Tate Modern.
