Skull-A-Day NFT Collection launches today!

 I'm excited to announce the release of all 366 of my original Skull-A-Day skulls as NFTs today!

This project has been months in the making and as of Noon Eastern Time the public is invited to mint their skulls on the special site we built for the project:


If you've been following this project since the beginning the site might look familiar as it was based on the layout of this blog way back in 2008. Look in the sidebar for some fun easter eggs in the form of the original blogroll (sorry the links don't work). 

I'd love to see what skulls you get, so be sure to share and tag me (@NoahScalin on IG & Twitter) and use the #skulladay hashtag! And of course please help me spread the word!

 Thanks for continuing to support me and this project on its 15th(!) anniversary!

Patreon-Exclusive: Skull Print Special Offer!

I'm celebrating my fifth year on Patreon this month!  
In honor of this milestone, I'm running a special offer for new and existing patrons! Starting today if you pledge $10 or more you'll get a limited edition print of my piece #Still_Life. This archival 9 x 9 in. print is signed and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. In addition you'll become part of my exclusive Team Art community of supporters who get access to content available nowhere else. Folks who pledge $25 or more will also get a surprise item of my choice from my archive! This special offer will be available to claim only until MIDNIGHT Eastern Time on Monday, February 28th.
Why sign up to be my supporter on Patreon?
Patreon is a way for creators to make more meaningful direct relationships with fans of their work. As the social media landscape becomes more fractured and difficult to navigate I'm putting my focus on sharing my process and inspiration with my supporters through this more intimate platform. On my Patreon page I have an exclusive feed, where you get behind-the-scenes look at the work I'm making as well as other content available nowhere else!

Here's what one of my supporters had to say about her experience: 

“I’ve been following Noah since his Skull-A-Day website days, and it’s wonderful to continue to access his art through Patreon. I really enjoy seeing and reading about his creative process, but seeing Noah’s art installed is the biggest thrill. It removes that feeling of distance and disappointment that I am never likely to see his art work in the flesh, when I can interact with Noah and his work online.”

– Beck Archer

 I was invited to participate in an all skull art show at Blockfort Gallery in Columbus, Ohio, so I decided to create a special new sticker art piece just for the exhibition.


As with my other sticker art work I just overlap the stickers without altering them in any way. My goal with this one was to get as much detail in as possible.


The piece is on a wooden 20 x 20 inch panel and the background is painted on after the piece is sealed. The piece is for sale and will be available through the gallery during the exhibition which runs October 1-31st.  

p.s. FYI my Patreon supporters got an exclusive first look at this piece with additional background information I've shared nowhere else. They also get first dibs on my art, including discounts on new prints, and have access to an art savings account to buy pieces, including commissions. You can join up for as little as $5 a month.

Skull-A-Day + @askulladay Collaboration


I had a great time once again collaborating with my friend in Brazil Lucas Dutra (AKA @askulladay) who has been creating his own skull a day since March of 2013! 

This time I created my half of the skull from used matches (which had been burned to create another recent piece of art).

His response was to create this amazing animated illustration! One of my favorite things about collaboration is creating something that I never would made on my own.

You can see the process of creating my part here:

RIP Peter Mayhew (1944–2019)

There's no overstating what a profound impact seeing Star Wars when it came out in 1977 had on my life and it was in no small part to the amazing performances of people like Peter Mayhew as Chewbacca...

My latest sticker art piece "Vanitas" was inspired by the 17th century Dutch Vanitas painting genre where images of skulls and other objects were used as a reminder to reflect on your mortality.

This piece will be on display at Star Gallery as part of their Memento Mori group show. If you're in the NYC area, please come join me at the opening reception on January 19th.  

Here's a time-lapse look at its creation:

If you like seeing how my work is created and want to delve deeper please check out my Patreon page, it's a small community of folks who directly support my art and in turn get exclusive behind-the-scenes access to me and my work!

Memento Mori @ Star Gallery, NYC - January 16-20

Fellow skull lovers, mark your calendars! I'm very happy to announce that I'm going to be part of this exciting show opening up next month in NYC. If you're in the area, I hope you'll come out to the opening reception on January 19th, see details below...

The group exhibit at Star Gallery NYC will showcase the work of dozens of prominent artists' personal explorations of this theme. Award-winning artists include Marshall Arisman, Chris Buzelli, Leslie Cober-Gentry, Katherine Streeter, Jason Limon, Gary Taxali, Anthony Freda, Victor Stabin, Steven Tabbutt, Skull-A-Day founder, Noah Scalin, Kevin Champeny, Zoltron, Dan Zollinger, Billy The Artist, Craig LaRotonda, James Hoston, James Yang, Peter Devito, Caitlin McCormack, Santiago Caruso, Rhett Hutchence, Gary Kroman, Eric Probst, Kevin Pyle, Danielle Mercado and Estephany Lopez.

Star Gallery NYC will also present a painting by the legendary Marshall Arisman. Arisman's paintings are part of the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum, the Smithsonian, and the Museum of American Art. Arisman's show Sacred Monkeys was the first American exhibit to be shown in Mainland China.

Skull-laden imagery looms large throughout art history, from the Aztecs to Damien Hirst. This show will present a unique and exciting collection. Much of the art in the group show at Star Gallery NYC is the stuff of dreams and macabre fantasies, but this theme also rings true as an affirmation of life rather than a celebration of death. There is dark humor, elegant craftsmanship, and masterful skills all at play in this eclectic exhibition.

Star Gallery NYC's exhibition includes the most interesting artists who are delving into this iconography, and the gallery is exhibiting the selected works together in one gallery space for a limited time next month.

Star Gallery NYC specializes in showing the best of pop-surrealism and cutting-edge illustration. Death is the great unifier and its most potent symbol, the skull, is a reminder that humanity is alike under the skin — it is one. The work in this show is spiritual and timeless, and it is an exhibition of which Star Gallery NYC is particularly proud.

The show will include original paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures created by a global selection of artists. The artworks are all for sale and Star Gallery NYC offers works suited for a range of collectors. Curated by Anthony and Amber Freda.

A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit Haitian orphans.

The exhibition will be on view Jan. 16 through Jan. 20. The opening reception is on Saturday, Jan. 19, 2019, at 2 Rivington Street, on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. The event is free and open to the general public.

About Star Gallery NYC
