A work colleague of mine was super excited to find this decorative day of the dead skull cookie online. He sent it to me immediately and shouted at me from across the office to make sure I had seen it. Maybe he wanted a high-five or something for finding it.
I have to admit though that this gingerbread skull biscuit looks great! The baker of this day of the dead treat is Cupookie and you can visit her blog here to see what other creations she has to feast on.
These adorable cushions featuring dancing skull figures celebrating the famous Day of The Dead in Mexico are creations of Twenty Seven Palms. The name Twenty Seven Palms amuses me no end as it reminds me of those crazy Japanese fighting movies where they have insane moves like ‘ Palm of Death’ and ‘Eight Blazing Fists’. I digress.
I have been following Design by Humans for awhile now and decided the other day to search in the skull t-shirts category. Man-o-man do they have a shedload of skull designs. Designs by humans works on the premise that you, the public, enter designs for voting and then one design everyday (though I do think they vary this) get chosen for printing as the ‘daily winner’. They have also started a new Collection category where the they feature some of their top designers.
Below are a few of these wicked skull t-shirt so make sure you visit the Design by Humans website to have a gander at the rest.
These amazing skull illustrations have created by Laurie Lipton. The detail in the illustrations is insane and Laurie’s work has a very distinctive style which you can recognise straight away and any true skull fan will most likely fall in love with her work. Most of Laurie’s artwork is available to buy from her online shop and you can like her Facebook Page here.
Here are some Day of the dead inspired skull designs that are destined to be tattoos created by Deviant artist ‘Some of that Homegrown’ AKA Ryan Holmberg. I particularly like the way he combines that classic mexican day of the dead style with other cultural influences like Russian and Rockabilly.
Then…after scheduling this post I stumbled upon these designs as tattoos. What are the chances!
Found this delightful skull shadow box on Tristan Robins blogspot. Not much other information apart from the the fact that it was an “El Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) shrine”. So of you know who it was created by then drop us a line.
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.
