In episode one I introduced you my friend and fellow Virginian Noah Scalin, whose book of Skulls caught my eye while I was perusing the back of a shop in Charleston South Carolina a few years ago. Every skull Noah creates is made from a different material, from turnips to tinfoil, and they are so amazing that Noah has become a bit of a skull celebrity. His art was recently featured in the Mammoth Book of Skulls, he speaks around the world on creative expression, teaches graphic design at the Virginia Commonwealth University, and even found time to hang out with Martha Stewart on her TV show. Noah has just released a new book of 365 skulls, which you can order online from Chop Suey books.
From the skull master you’ll learn about:
- Martha Stewart
- A Limited Rebellion: Noah’s socially conscious design firm
- B Corp, and the triple bottom line
- Saul Bass and the invisible band of people
- League of Space Pirates, and the fallacy of Good and Evil
- Crash (the movie)
- The danger of incrementalism
- Edward Snowden
- Giving up our freedoms out of fear
- Patriot Act
- Zombie Apocalypse
- The Rapture
- A tweet from Justin Bieber
- Occam’s Razor
- How money controls power
- Silent Spring by Rachel Carson
- The Jungle by Upton Sinclair
- The American Way of Death by Jessica Mitford
- Tiananmen Square
- Bowling for Columbine
- Work-Life Balance
- How a Fear Driven Life Affects You
- Taoist Idea of Awareness and Living in the Present
- Our Own Famous Last Words
