I have a board on Pinterest called Skeletons and Skulls where I post beautiful artwork of skulls or skeletons. In case you haven’t been following (though I’m sure you will now, right? ;)) here are some of my recent faves.
My fiance is a bit obsessed with skulls, and I’ve always found them interesting myself. So they’ve slowly crept deeper and deeper into my life. My key chain is a skull, I have shirts with skulls on them, and even my piggy bank is a skull. The piggy bank is our tattoo money. So far I think I have less than a dollar in there, I really need to get on that.
Some people use them as inspiration for tattoos. I love this one where the other art on the arm makes the overall piece look like a skull. Check out my Tattoos board to see some other cool tattoos and some I’m thinking of getting myself.
But my favorite recent skull find is this awesome maternity shirt. If you don’t look at any of my other links, you gotta check this one out!
Probably most of you have seen Dove’s recent beauty sketches ad. Here is my two cents worth, It’s an ad. For a beauty product company. Of course it is going to be about beauty. It’s an ad, it is going to be dramatic, and seem unrealistic. It’s a story they are telling. It’s an ad. People are upset because of course we are still talking about women’s beauty as being what they are worth. But I don’t think that is the actual message, I think people like to be negative whenever possible. I think that Dove was trying to show that sometimes how we see ourselves isn’t always in the best light. Sometimes the way other people look at us can give us insight into our own lives and we take from that what we will. Personally, I like this ad.
Watch this time lapse video of a person building the Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh in dominoes, and watch it fall into place. Quite beautiful. And honestly, I don’t know if I would have the patience for such a project. If I spend that much time on a project I want it to last longer than thirty seconds of falling.
