Media Militia have created this amazing downloable file of human skulls for you to use as reference for illustration and other creative projects. It can be used for personal and commercial purposes too. Heck, how amazing is that?
The file contains 54 human skulls, from fetal skulls through to decrepit skulls, and all skulls are photographed in a number of positions on a black background. Have I mentioned it’s free???

It’s so simple and yet so bloody skull-marvellous. This pencil skull collage was found on Pinterest - I searched for about 30 minutes for the artists but a man’s gotta eat! Which means I needed to cook some grub. Feel free to share the artist with us, you know we aim to please your skull satisfactions.
Monday mornings are great when you get to feast your eyes on these amazing 3D digital skull illustrations by Antonio Tudisco. Antonio is a German artist and graphic designer and creates a variety of 3d illustrations. His work is a vibrant kaleidoscope of 3D magic and has done graphic art for a number of big-name brands including Nike, Vans, Nestle, Coca Cola, Reebok and MTV. If you are this good at digital then you don’t have much else to worry about.
These 3D digital skull illustrations are bad-ass. Say no more.
Happy Easter Monday! Hopefully you’ve had a good long weekend (well, for those of you who get the extra days off) and enjoyed the Easter break.
I did a search for Easter skulls and this is what I found! There is a Tumblr image which is not credited properly (no surprise there) so please let me know if you recognise where they are from.

I’ve seen this skull making the rounds on social media and Tumblr but cannot find the artist credited anywhere, even when using Google Images. Any ideas?
Here are some fantastic illustrated skulls created by Indonesian illustrator Geno75. I have been following the illustration work of Geno75 since we (Mr Four Fingers) joined Design By Humans and since then I have noticed his name crop up many more times on various t-shirt blogs around the web.
You can see more of his skulls and other designs by visiting his online store/profile at Design By Humans (first design below) or check out his gory Tumblr account.

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.
Matt Taylor is a massive inspiration to me with regards to his amazing compositions, themes, colour palette, skulls…Ok most of what he does I love. You have probably seen his work at some point or another and this time we are sharing some of his great and unusual skull screen printed designs for a past exhibition called The Brighton Freakshow.
There are also some lovely process detail shots and I have eventually learned the name of that damn ink brush, called Pentel Pocket Brush. I imagine those prints are all sold out but I did see this skull figure racing a bike called Ride Like The Devil that is currently available as a single colour A3 screen print for £20. Get in.
This Skull illustration is by Raf The Might and was found on his Facebook page – TOO MANY SKULLS.
This skull-based illusration, and coloured with acrylic, is titled Dracula and has been created by Beatriz Martin Vidal.
