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.

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.
I was first introduced to Danish artist Jacob Dahlstrup quite awhile ago with his Flora Skull piece. An amazingly intricate massive graphite drawing of skull that is essentially a mass of plants. This behemoth took 100hrs to create and I can only imagine how many times his hand and mind went numb living at the tip of the pencil.
Jacob has a stunning portfolio with an array of graphite drawings, some of them like the Eclipse involved using something called sanguine. I had no clue what this was but I can let you know now (thanks Wiki) that sanguine is red chalk. His work varies in style from strong geometric shapes to the wonderfully textured craters on the moon.
He also has some sublime graphite drawings on animal skulls that were curated in bell jars (love those things) and various other skull pieces dotted about his portfolio.

These next set of skull illustrations have been done by Jeral Tidwell, AKA HUMAN TREE. The prints are all part of a limited edition series and range from only $35 to $40. You can buy them all from Human Tree’s website here.
I spotted this amazing series of skull-themed illustrations on Streets of Beige, which is a pretty sweet blog. This series is called ’Bones Brigade’ by Sebastien Cuypers.
As well as being skull lovers on SAS, we are also skull fiends over at Mr Four Fingers (our illustration conduit). Here are a few pieces we left in the streets of London recently. These are part of a bigger Left and Found series where we leave original pieces strewn about in public areas.
We tend to create these ‘pieces’ on substrates that we have found in the streets. I guess it’s some form up upcyling. I these curved slices of MDF found by a bin somewhere. There are another two that ended up being gifts (I know I know) that I will try get pictures of at some point.
Jirat Patradoon is an Australian artist/illustrator/graphic designer. His skull-based graphic art is bold, colourful, very striking and is a take on the ‘stoic nature of macho pop culture,’ which is a quote taken directly from Jirat’s website. He creates character-styled visual art of fictional worlds using borrowed imagery and his unique style. I have been wanting to blog about these glorious skull-based works for ages but wanted to give it the attention it deserves. He has a variety of work from posters through to art-installations and including fashion design – I’ve included a leather jacket he designed with a monster skull on the back.
Some of the images below, are my favourite of the lot are gifs, which remind me of scenes from Drive – I can’t quite place them so if you recognise them then leave a comment below. I love the way he has made them to be bright and colourful and yet the scenes themselves are dark and sinister. Enjoy!
Luke Scheid is not only a pretty damn good tattoo artist but he also has some fantasticaly vintage skulls. We found these skull pencil drawings on his Deviant artist account though you can check out some more of his tattoo work on Facebook.

This is a Giclee print on Matt Litho realistic paper. This paper delivers exceptional print results with the feel and longevity of a heavy matte offset paper. It’s ultra smooth like compressed chalk, holds colours amazingly, the blacks are rich, the colours pop and the detail is exceptional.
