All-black sugar skulls of Mario, Alien, LEGO minifig, and other icons


Last year, I posted about BB pal Jonathan Koshi's brilliantly-reimagined pop culture calaveras, the decorated skulls associated with the Dia de los Muertos. Now, Koshi has released a new limited print run of his letterpressed skull series featuring Spy vs. Spy, Alien, Mario, and other characters. This special series, titled "Molasses," is black ink letterpressed on black paper, and damn they look sharp. They're 12" x 12", printed on heavyweight recycled paper, and cost just $42 each during the presale that ends this Saturday (11/10). You can see the skulls in person at a group show at San Francisco's Campfire Gallery opening November 10.

  1. Ah so last time when he said limited edition he meant “unless I change the colour of the paper or something, whatever, screw you”, good to know.

  2. Maybe I need a better monitor but this is reminiscent of my 3rd grade art class rendering of a naked snowman in a snowstorm illustration
