From the 1950s until the 1980s, Randy and Dotti Smith supplied a line of fantastic cast sculptures sold in Disney theme-park gift shops, especially a line of skulls sold in shops associated with the Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean rides; these Randotti skulls haven't been sold in decades, you can still find used ones (at high prices) online, as Boing Boing pal and fabulous illustrator Coop discovered when he sourced an impressive collection of Randotti sculpts.

Coop used the skulls as the basis for a set of gorgeous illustrations that he's selling as tees and hoodies through Threadless.

These are some of my favorite designs of all time, and some of my favorite Coop illos: he really captured the spirit of these pieces.
