Happy Skull Appreciation Day!

For those of you that don't know, June 4th marks the start of my original Skull-A-Day project way back in 2007. After the project ended I kept the site going as a place for the community that formed around it to continue sharing their skull art and I dubbed it Skull-A-Day 2.0. This year is Skull-A-Day 10.0! It's been an amazing journey these past 9 years and there isn't a day that goes by that I'm not experiencing a benefit of that commitment to practice. I highly recommend giving a daily creative project a shot, you never know where it will take you. And be sure to give your head bone some extra love today.

RIP Prince 1958–2016

I'm shocked and heartbroken that another musical genius has died far too young.

Dead Media 5: Newspaper Skull

I was invited to speak at Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas and as part of my visit I worked with students in the graphic design program to create a new large scale anamorphic installation in the lobby of the School of the Arts building. The timing was appropriate as it was just announced that the local newspaper would no longer be printing in town, but moving production to another city before eventually transitioning to just a digital format. This temporary piece will stay up for just a few days before it is disassembled and recycled.

This piece is part of my ongoing Dead Media series. Would you like me to make one at your school? Get in touch.

Snowmageddon Skull

My hometown was hit by this year's crazy blizzard and since we're not used to dealing with snow down South, everything shut down. After 2 days stuck at home we all start to get a bit stir crazy. Luckily the sun was out today and snow was finally packing friendly, so I decided to add another snow skull creation to my collection...

And after two days in the sun...

RIP David Bowie 1947–2016

David Bowie's death was surprisingly shocking, he'd always been in the background of my life and I guess I unconsciously expected him to live forever.
