Quick Intro Clip of some London Street Art by Nychos
I walk past these most days and now that I’ve watched the video’s I can’t believe what an amazing talent this man is.
NYCHOS is incredible and his work can be seen in most major cities – just watching his video’s now and the man is a graffiti machine, I still don’t know how he does it. Through Rabbit Eye Movement he has been mentioned on most high-profile art blogs and websites and is definitely one of the most well-known street artists of our generation.
Nychos’ work focussing heavily on dissection, anatomy, skeletons and skulls. His style is instantly recognisable and even if you don’t know the ‘art scene,’ once you’ve seen his work you will know straight away when you’ve seen it again. He is able to create art on a variety of mediums including A3 prints to huge fantastic murals which are cartoon-like in their execution but the level of detail he gets out of a tin of spray paint is mind-boggling.
Even though the main focus of his art is not skulls, what kind of Appreciation Society would we be if we didn’t mention him and give you the chance to see his creations and some great little vids too which show you some process shots.

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.
World Wildlife Products is the animal division of Atlantic Coral Enterprise and as you can tell by the name they sell an absolute plethora of items from nature ranging from wholesale sea shells, animal bones, skulls, eggs, decorative fish nets… the list goes on. This is a shop that would be damn awesome to visit. They are based in Saint Augustine, Florida, so if that’s a little out the way then be sure to visit their online store.
As far as I can see they do not ship internationally and there is a $100 minimum order required.
Below are a selection of skulls we found.Some pictures are pretty small but on their website they also provide a written description of the products which will proves useful when buying.
Vervet Monkey Skull
As you know, if you have read the actual previous posts instead of just gazing at all the amazing skull imagery we love sharing, we run an art and illustration blog called Mr Four Fingers and we recently held our first exhibition at the Haggerston Espresso Room. The exhibition was a huge success and we also collaborated with a couple of up-and-coming designers and one of the collabs resulted in these cool skull bags..
These skull bags were the end result of our collaboration with the talented Elizabeth Dunn. Elizabeth creates bespoke handmade shoes and hand bags and wanted to try adding some extra skull-flavour to her amazing designs. We happily obliged and painted 2 different skulls onto separate pieces of leather which were then sewn on to the hand made bags.
The bags are available to buy from the Mr Four Fingers online shop for £180.
Some amazing skull photography by Robin Loznak. He does not normally photograph skulls as this was only a way to show off his new studio upgrade for better and seamless backgrounds. We are glad he did because they are great.
You can check out the rest of the skulls here and you can also visit his website here.
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.
This porcelain skull tea set, dating to the late 1800′s, consists of a teapot, teacups, saucers and a creamer. This whole creepy skull set has now been sold on EBAY for an undisclosed amount though the offer originally given by the seller was $5000 (best offer accepted). This is something that would not look amiss in the home of the Addams Family or any of our homes actually!
There is no further information supplied as to who originally created these or if they belonged to anyone famous or notoriously odd. So leave a comment if you know more.

Hand painted unique skulls created with paper mache (Dia de los Muertos style). The skulls vary in price from $60 to $70 and in keeping with tradition skulls these can be hand painted to customers specifications and most if not all are pretty amazing.
