ThinkGeek has gone and done what many never imagined and few ever accomplished: improved one of humankind’s most genius inventions – the candle. Yes, their skull-shaped candle, which drips red wax out of the eye socket as it burns, is quite possibly the awesomest candle ever. And reasonably priced as well. Happy Halloween!
We’ve been wowed by Souverein’s work with Dutch agency Van Wanten Etctera, where they executed some pretty rocking book sculptures of famous people for Dutch Book Week.

Katsuyo Aoki is a Japanese sculptor from Tokyo who uses porcelain to create her series of skull shaped works, entitled Predictive Dream. As she says: ‘The decorative styles, patterns and symbolic forms I allude to and incorporate in my works each contain a story based on historical backgrounds and ideas, myths, and allegories’.

One of my interns came across this skull work by English graphic designer Jitesh Patel, who has a studio in Shoreditch, London. I have a serious love for skulls and this work done entirely in paper is just incredible. He uses his blog to celebrate tote bag prints and the talented designers who create digital illustration and graphic design print.
This beautifully delicate 3D printed filigree skull by Joshua Harker is offered on the Kickstarter crowd funding platform. It’s the most funded sculpture project in their history.
