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.
Skulboy has been busy and here's a heapin' pile of new stuff to prove it. Legacy Mongoose and Protege Clutch, Oak Grove Disc Gnome tourny stamp on Innova, single foil MVPTesla and the Small Axe Puck mini set are up and the store is back open! Skulboy Store
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.

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.

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.
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.

Preparing for the mold.

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.
Sorry for the lack of updates and here is the latest.
As of right now, the Skulboy Storenvy shop is closed while I bring in some new stuff.
When it opens back up, get ready for some Collectable Skulboy tournament stamps on Legend Line Legacy plastic and Innova Glow Rocs (pictured above), a new batch of hand-made Flywood wooden discs and more.
Plus, lots of things on the Skulboy Designs drawing table. Be on the lookout for a 2013 Holiday stamp for Discovering The World, a couple of new molds in the Legacy Excel line and a fresh Legacy fairway driver custom stamp from Disc Nation.
And could we be seeing a Skulboy Ultimate disc stamp?
