Some exciting Skulboy Designs news from MVP Disc Sports!
Very much looking forward to continuing the Skulboy/MVP custom stamps directly from the amazing MVP Team.
"Introducing the Skulboy Orbital, in stores September 4th.
We're pleased to welcome Skulboy Designs for his first factory-direct MVP model stamp, the limited edition Skulboy Orbital. This dual foil stamp design continues Skulboy's series depicting the Doc Volt character. All discs are Neutron Orbital with black and silver holographic foils. This is a collectible limited edition of 1,000 discs.
In the past Skulboy stamps have been available only through a third party stamper. Moving forward we anticipate offering new Skulboy MVP model stamps -- now our dealers can get in on these collectibles at a great price!"
Was very fortunate to receive the Tester package from MVP Disc Sportscontaining the latest discs set for release on May 22nd, Plasma AMP,Axiom Discs Neutron FIREBALL and the Fission PHOTON. Got them out to course today and here are my thoughts (my max distance is usually between 250-280'.) FIREBALL: The one MVP sent is so darn swirly I almost didn't want to throw it, but was curious about it and let it fly. Overstable is a fitting description for my arm strength. This will be in the bag for those shots that require a heavy fade at the end of flight. PHOTON: The Distance Driver wide rim really feels nice with my grip. Need more backhand throws to fine tune it's potential, but it felt good and flew well. The biggest surprise however was with my forehand drives. I got stable throws and more effortless distance than with any of my other forehand discs. Keeper for sure. Excited about getting in more work with this one. AMP: I must state this- I LOVE PLASMA PLASTIC! It made me fall in love with the VOLT all over again and now it will put an AMP in my bag where there never was one before. The grip and flexiblity of Plasma is perfection and the stable to slightly understable flight of the AMP will be a fitting compliment to the VOLT. Looks like the beloved newcomer, WRATH, will have some competition.

15cm diameter, 275g golden aluminum trophy disc and 10 discs for prizes.
In addition to the above, I will be opening the Skulboy Vaults for some very unique MVP prizes.
The hottest putter with the Astounding Grip now has a stamp with spinning chains and swirling skulls, Skulboy Style. Plus, get one with a limited run, Skulboy designed mini-logo for the 1st ever permanent Disc Golf course, Oak Grove.
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.
One of the prototypes marking a spot on the course.
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.
