Engraved & Inked Skulls by Peter Deligdisch
Skulls are one of those things that you just can’t have enough of around the house. Sean and I are always on the lookout for people to recruit as skullfinders for us, since we pretty much stay at home and blog like city folk and don’t make it out to the deep woods enough to expand our collection. I like a nice clean yet weathered animal skull salvaged straight from the forest floor, but I am also into decorated skulls. Peter Deligdisch, aka Peter Draws, is doing stunning things with skulls. He burns his line drawings and patterns into the bone, driving the pyrographic patterns into the very cells of the animal. The result is gorgeous, a tattooed kaleidoscope of scorch and ink on the surface of deer, fox and bear skulls. Below take a look at some of the pieces he has created and also a video of his pyrography on a bear skull. You can also pick up a book of his drawings here!
