Michael Leon just updated his site with a bunch of new work including these amazing skull sculpturs, 3D versions of his iconic skull with sunglasses drawings. These puppies were made with the help of Bob Kronabuer, who I remember from back in the day when he did those Crownfarmer t-shirts. They also got Mike over at Furni to help with the final production molds.
I think these looks totally sweet, and at only $250 a piece they really aren’t that expensive. I think I love the all white more than the black. I like being able to see all the details in the skulls. I’d also suggest reading this little interview that Michael did with SlamxHype that also talks about the production of these beauties.

About Your Wallpaper:
Recently I’ve been trying to create insanely cluttered images that suggest repetitiveness similar to that of a patterned wallpaper or fabric but without the reticulation. To create these images I use a library of pre-created and purposely created images to suggest this repetitiveness. When creating this wall paper for the desktop project I realized that computer icons would disappear amongst the mass of iconography in my images, although I thought that this could be kind of fun I realized that most people would probably just want to punch the screen out of frustration so I included an area of blank space for your icons. I hope you enjoy it.
This wallpaper reminds me of a crazy Flash game that you play online. This one would involve riding around on a skateboard shooting skeletons who try to rob your brain… or something like that. Wouldn’t you play a game like that?
Some days I want to be a photographer so badly. It seems like it would be such a great job to have, trying to create capture just the right moment or tell a story with a single image.
People like Jamie Chung are exactly like that, who have an immense creative vision that they convey through photography. Jamie graduated from Parsons in 2007 and since then he’s obviously been keeping busy. He’s represented by one of the best photo agencies in the States and has two portfolios of really amazing work online, as well seven other projects.
Put Alexander McQueen in the cool pile after this one, for me.
Mr. McQeen’s rib adorned suitcase is sooooo rad. Designed for Samsonite’s Black Label Collection, you would be sure to get looks at the airport with a bag like that!
