365 Skulls…and counting

Dog Hair Skull by Noah Scalin

The creator of Skull-A-Day, Noah Scalin, has one simple objective—to make a skull out of anything he can find, everyday for a year.

Noah literally uses any material to make images of skulls, like the fantastic skull made out of dog fur above. He also takes submissions from his readers who send in pictures of their own hand-made skulls or any skull they may happen to find. Skulls are everywhere if you search hard enough.

The year of creating skulls is coming to an end though, Skull-A-Day is currently on skull #342.

So what’s going to happen after skull #365? A vacation for Noah. But due to the overwhelming response from his readers, Skull-A-Day is going to continue for at least another 6 months. He’s going to be turning it over to his readers and will be posting a new skull made by a reader everyday. It’s good to see that it’s not going to come to an end!

The response to Skull-A-Day has been so enormous that it recently won the prestigious Webby People’s Voice Award for the Personal Website Category. Noah says that he doesn’t have a master plan for all the skulls he’s made. Perhaps an exhibit or a book? But for now, you can be sure to get your daily fix of skull imagery at Skull-A-Day.

Here are a few of my favorites from Skull-A-Day.
