BoingBoing readers may already be familiar with artist Noah Scalin Skull-A-Day project from a previous post. I met Noah at the 2009 GEL conference in New York City and was immediately struck by his ability to so creatively render an idea in so many different media (vegetables, shoelaces, bed sheets, concrete construction barriers, and so on.)

In early July (July 3 to August 22 to be precise), a solo art show of his work in opens in Richmond, VA. It's at the Quirk Gallery, 311 West Broad Street, Richmond, VA. He'll be displaying his newly available Skull-a-Day wallpaper as well.

It took me a while to see the skull in the wallpaper, but yup, there it is.


  1. Cool, I’m somewhat local to Richmond, and this looks neat. I’m also redoing my kitchen, and that wallpaper looks just about right for the design motif I’m going for (functional industrial with a hint of steampunk).


  2. Thanks for the tip…per Google Maps I’m 12 minutes away. Now I’ve got something to look forward to besides oppressive heat this summer.
