I apologize for the complete lack of post, but if you've been keeping an eye on the Skulboy Facebook Page, you've noticed I've been keeping busy with work and all things Disc Golf. Check the Gallery Page for the latest Skulboy artwork.
I spent the last 8 months working in Georgia as a Sculptor for the film Guardians Of The Galaxy: Vol.2. Although I can't say anything about the movie, I can tell you I found some outstanding Disc Golf course in Georgia. Below are some photos of some very challenging courses that combined everything from tight wooded alleyways, water hazards, and large open fields.
Boundary Waters Park: Douglasville, GA
J.P. Moseley Park: Stockbridge, GA
Oregon Park: Marietta, GA
McCurry Park: Fayetteville, GA
Wyomia Tyus Olympic Park: Griffin, GA
International Disc Golf Center: Augusta, GA
Once my stint in Georgia was finished, I hopped over to Michigan and had the honor of meeting MVP Disc Sports Brad and Chad Richardson to talk business and play some Disc Golf.
Sorry for the inconvenience, but the Skulboy Disc Store will be temporarily closed
for the next few months.
There are some very exciting things brewing however, so when it opens back up, stay tuned for new releases coming from Skulboy through Disc Or Die, double stamped, Limited Edition goodness from MVP and a restock of Latitude and MVP customs!
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.
The first ever Disc Golf event hosted by Skulboy Designs has it's date set and I'm really looking forward to putting on a MVP Circuit.

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.
