OG Mini Logo

As always, I'm honored every time I get to do artwork for the legendary Oak Grove in Pasadena, CA. OG has the distinction of being the World's First permanent Disc Golf course and has a thriving community of players and club that cares deeply for this Historic park.

I was asked to do a mini logo for the 2015 Bag Tag. The club really liked it and will now be using the logo throughout the year on minis, shirts and hopefully some discs.
Keep an eye on the Skulboy Store as I will be putting some of these items there when available.


A simplified version was done for the bag tag.

Mini!

Couple of Months Worth of Stuff.

Been a few months since my last post, so here are some photos of recent Skulboy stuff.
We'll start with the most recent and work back.

Legacy OUTLAW



Line art and photo of the Axiom Discs Artist Series: Skulboy THEORY.
Doubled stamped, Limited Edition of 1,000.
(These will be the Skulboy Store after Thanksgiving weekend.)

Super cool getting to work with MVP/Axiom Discs on this one and even got to choose plate and over-mold colors. This design really goes back to my comic-book roots and feature the origin of Doc Volt.

Antoine's Safari Challenge

And, let's finish this updated with a DG pic. Verdugo Hills in Southern California.

Pasadena Pro/Am Sculpted Trophy

After doing the stamp design for the Oak Grove DGC Pasadena Pro/Am tournament, the Tournament Director, Jeff Nyerges, asked if I was interested in doing something for the trophy.
Always looking to stay busy with sculpting, I decided to do a relief medallion featuring the Disc Gnome from the stamp I drew (below.)


Roughed in, 4" diameter relief in Monster Clay.

The plan was originally to attach the relief to a standard trophy base.
Thanks to Mark at Cooler Heads, the idea changed to a sculpted plaque to frame the disc.

Oak tree bark frame in process. Carved in urethane foam.

Smooth-On silicone mold and bark plaque casting.

Disc Gnome medallion was primed in black and painted with 2 coats of metallic gold.

Final version ready for name plates.

Lined up at the tournament. 
Overall, 10 were hand-made for the 1st place winner in each division.
Despite sweltering heat, the tourny was extremely well run and a total blast.
Great day of Disc Golf competition.

Skulboy Sculpted Mini: Paint Process

Chain-Chomper full-color Skulboy Sculpted Mini
has a 8 step paint process and here is the breakdown.

After the mini is casted in urethane resin, it is sanded and any air bubbles on the underside are filled. Both sides are then sprayed with an off-white primer which becomes the bone colored base.


First up is the medium yellow which is painted in to represent the shadows.


Following the yellow is an umber paint to help deepen the shadows and define the lines.
Next is a white dry-brush technique on the high spots to establish the highlights.
The mini is then spayed with a clear, matte varnish to lock down all the colors to that point.
The final touches are: gloss white on the eyes, metallic silver on the chains and red in the pupils.

Ready for the chains and the glaring red pupil.

Once complete, the Chain-Chomper is flipped over, numbered, dated and signed.
It is definitely a time consuming endeavor, but rewarding.

Full-Color Chain-Chomper

A look at a couple of the full-color prototypes of the 
Chain-Chomper Skulboy Sculpted Mini.

Latest Update: May 2014

After spending over 5 months working in Vancouver, BC (as a sculptor for The Night At The Museum 3 movie,) I'm back in Los Angeles forging ahead with everything Skulboy Designs.
Here's the latest.

CHAIN-CHOMPER Skulboy Sculpted Mini
This is a completely hand-crafted item that started with the mini disc sculpture that was then molded. Following the molding process was casting parts, shopping the parts and painting them.

The casting process.

Still getting the casting color ratios worked out and designing the packaging. Hoping to have these available this Summer in a single color version and a fully painted version.

One of the prototypes marking a spot on the course.

MVP/Skulboy TESLA
MVP's highly anticipated Distance Drivers are finally making their way into the hands of Disc Golfers everywhere. This custom Skulboy stamp from Disc Nation once again features Doc Volt standing at the ready with his Tesla Staff of Justice. This red-hot disc is available in the Skulboy Store.

MVP/Skulboy 1st Run, double stamped TESLA.

OAK GROVE Tournament stamp
The Oak Grove Disc Golf Course is not only the first permanent Disc Golf course in the world, but also what I consider to be my "home course." It has been a honor to get to design a stamp for the sport's most historical destination. 
I've had this artwork idea for a Disc Gnome on hole 8 for many, many years. Ever lose a disc when you know right where it should be? The secret of the Disc Gnome is revealed at last.

Disc Golf Vancouver

While working on location in Vancouver, BC I had a chance to take in a few Disc Golf courses that were near the downtown area.

Quilchena DGC was 12 baskets situated along a pedestrian sidewalk in a suburban neighborhood.There was a leash-free area for dogs and plenty of walkers.



Jericho Hill DGC was a 9 hole course with some nice elevation and great views from the top.
The park also had a tonal course which I didn't get the chance to try.


Little Mountain DGC had 9 baskets in a park with slight elevation and water hazards.
Met some great locals who played a round of 9 with me in the standard position and then a second round in the course's original layout. Short, but fun Disc Golf.

Gallery Update

Been awhile, but I finally got around to updating the Gallery Page.
Be sure to stop in and see what's been coming off the Skulboy drawing table.

CHAIN CHOMPER Sculpted Skulboy Mini-Disc

Prototypes of sculpted Chain Chomper mini.

The latest Skulboy Designs project is the sculpted mini-disc Disc Golf marker. I've been trying to find ways of bringing sculpture into Disc Golf and after running into issues with a Disc Golfer statue, I think I may found a better solution with these minis. I plan on doing a series of minis and of course, a skull had to be the first. I am Skulboy after all.

 The urethane foam and sketch.

Finished sculpture.

Preparing for the mold.

The 2-part silicone mold and original sculpt.

As with the prototypes at the top of the page, there will be 2 versions. One that is color tinted casting resin and a full painted version.
These will be available in Spring 2014.
