To help reinforce their assertion that sugar is evil, the designers over at Hundred Million designed this wicked Sugar Skull Spoon. Cut from stainless steel, this anatomical serving utensil serves as a morbid reminder every time you get a little scoop happy. Though even if you’re not counting calories it still beats a regular spoon. Pick it up on Kickstarter for about $13. (via Cool Material, This Isn’t Happiness)

Update: The sugar skull spoon is now available in the Colossal Shop.

 

 



Design Illustration

Pop-Culture Calavera Prints

Illustrator Jonathan Koshi has turned the heads of pop-culture icons into cavaleras, a visual depiction of skulls most often associated with the Mexican celebration for the Day of the Dead.

After nearly 10 years living in the Mission, I was inspired to design a series of Calaveras, sugar skulls, popularized by the Dia de los Muertos celebration. I got a lot of positive response and more than a few requests for prints. […] This is a limited edition, six designs, 50 prints per design. Each is 12 inches square. Mailed flat.
