Arsinoitherium has one scary skull

When I initially saw this skull I though it was a fake Kaiju from Pacific Rim. Maybe even that big bastard from Avatar. This scary skull is far from fake and actually belongs to a Arsinoitherium. This was a massive elephant like herbivore that has been extinct for 27 – 36 million years. Yes, this was a real animal.

When they were flesh and blood they resembled a rhinoceros. The skull is far more sinister than the artist renderings of what the creature could have looked like.

We have been admiring the skull drawings and watercolours of Devin Lee Francisco for a little while now. It’s about time we shared.

Devin’s collection of skull drawings emanate evil and dark undertones. His skulls and figres often appear bathed in murky light like nightmares on a misty night.

What has taken me by surprise is the fact that he also has some pretty amazing skull sculptures in his collection. These metallic skulls are all made from scrap metal.

Jed Leiknes Time Lapse Skull Paintings

I’m not sure what is more disturbing, Jed’s grotesque skull paintings or that eerie ambient music he plays in his time lapse videos. Either way, I like both. Oh, he also creates the music, which reminds me of playing Silent Hill.

Both of these skulls are oil paintings, with the first skull below taking about 2 hrs to complete and the second about an 1hr, both alla prima which is fancy talk for wet-on-wet.

Check out these skulls and more gory paintings by Jed Leiknes on his YouTube Page.

Crazy In The Coconut Skull

This coconut skull has found it’s way into the dark folds of the Skull Appreciation Society and we all welcome you. This fiendish mask-like skull was carved by skull nut (badum tish) Scott Middlehurst,  a self taught artists hailing from Canada. Scott has made me aware that these skulls can be made available for purchase but do take a month to create from start to finish (includes getting the coconuts). If you dig this skull as much as we do then we recommend popping over to Scotts Facebook page (liking it of course) and get in touch with regards to pricing.

Hopefully we will see many more skull creations in the near future.

Evil Skull

This print may be sold out, you can see why, but it still deserves to join the skull ranks. This Evil Skull screen print was created by Pure Evil at the lovely London Print Club. Pure Evil, if I’m correct, also has a small exhibition gallery in London and is very cool place to visit.
