ABOUT


My name is Noah Scalin and I made a Skull-A-Day for a year. I started by making an orange paper skull on June 4th, 2007 and posting it online saying, "I'm making a skull a day for a year". I made my 365th skull on June 2nd, 2008 (and even posted a bonus skull the day after since it was a leap year!).

June 3rd, 2008 marked the start of year two of the project (called Skull-A-Day 2.0) and featured daily submissions from readers.

In October 2008 a book based on the Skull-A-Day, featuring 150 images from the first half of the project, was published by Lark Books. It's called SKULLS and you can buy it from your local independent bookstore or online via Amazon.com or Barnes & Nobel or Powell's Books.

June 3rd, 2009 marked the start of Skull-A-Day 3.0 in which the project continued to feature daily skull submissions, but with the addition of two new site editors: Skull-A-Day überfans Tatman and Citizen Agent, who both made a year of their own original weekly skulls as well (see them HERE and HERE)!

June 3rd, 2010 marked the start of Skull-A-Day 4.0 in which the project continues to feature daily skull submissions, but with the addition of one more site editor: Abby AKA Azurafae, who is also making her own year of original weekly skulls (which you can see HERE)!

June 3rd, 2011 marked the start of Skull-A-Day 5.0. To celebrate the 5th year of the project I committed to making 100 skull paintings

June 4th, 2011 was the the first official international Skull Appreciation Day. See some of the fun that happened that day HERE.

June 4th, 2012 was the start of Skull-A-Day 6.0 as well as the second official international Skull Appreciation Day, which was celebrated with a one-day exhibition at Philadelphia's Mütter Museum

June 4th, 2013 was the start of Skull-A-Day 7.0 as well as the third official international Skull Appreciation Day which was celebrated with an exhibition at the International Museum of Surgical Science in Chicago, Illinois co-curated by Noah Scalin and Vanessa Ruiz of Street Anatomy.

To see all of my original skulls go HERE.

From time to time I make additional skulls and add them to the count (along with a special one was made by the biggest fan of the site). You can keep track of the new ones here: BONUS SKULLS 366 and counting
