Skulls and Bacon Shirt on Top Chef

Holy cow, well this made my day! I love the show Top Chef, I dvr it every week to make sure I don't miss anything. Tonight, just as I was walking in the door, I got an email from TS Rogers, who designed my awesome Skulls & Bacon logo. He said that one of the chefs was wearing a Skulls & Bacon t-shirt on the show. I ran to my tv and check it out:

I also found this interview with Chef Andrea from last month where the interviewer made it a point to note that she wore a shirt with a skull and bacon crossbones print to the meeting.

Crazy, right? Chef Andrea Curto-Randazzo rocks the Skulls & Bacon logo. How exciting!

Anyhow, I want to give thanks again to TS Rogers. He really is a talented artist and I am so lucky that he shared his gift with me. You can see more of his work here: Teaessare Illustration and Design

If you like the logo or just want to look like a Top Chef contestant, you can pick up a shirt or other goodies from my Zazzle store.

Attention Kmart Shoppers

Yeah, I know it's been a while. Equal parts of busy and lazy keep me from doing all of the things I mean to do. But you know, I have to share when I find some awesome new skull stuff, that gets me motivated! Today when I saw the weekly flyer for Kmart I actually ran to a computer to buy this stuff. I wasn't even at home so I had to commandeer my mom's computer for a little drive-by-shopping. Here's what I picked up:

COEXIST by Cannon Skull Beaded Window PanelCOEXIST by Cannon Skull Beaded Window Panel
Pretty sure I'll use these as door beads but they'd look awesome over some window sheers too. Regular price is $9.99 but they are on sale for $5.99 this week. Score!

COEXIST by Cannon Skull Printed SheerCOEXIST by Cannon Skull Printed Sheer
I bought four of these, on sale for $5.99. I don't even care that it doesn't match my color scheme, how often do you see skull window coverings?

Essential Home Rose & Skull Fiber Reactive Beach Towel Essential Home Rose & Skull Fiber Reactive Beach Towel
I need another towel like I need a hole in my head but this one is freakin' cool and on sale for 5.99.

EMTEC USB Flash Drive 4GB Skull and CrossbonesEMTEC USB Flash Drive 4GB Skull and Crossbones
Nice 4GN skull flash drive for only $16.99. Heck, I'd buy it just to use as a keychain.

Back to school time is a great time for finding new skull stuff and Kmart has tons more.

I'd love to hear from anyone that's seen some radically new and awesome bacon or skull things. Drop me a line!

R.I.P. Ryan August of I Want Your Skull

I've been away from blogging for a couple of weeks and just saw the news that Ryan August from the wonderful blog and 'zine,, has left this earth too soon. While we never met, I always made sure to visit his blog often. He was an extremely talented artist and he will be missed. Fellow artist, Brian Mercer, says that there will be a tribute coming soon, I'll post again when there's further details.
