Skull-A-Day is an ongoing online art project/blog created by artist Noah Scalin. For its first year the site consisted of daily skull art creations made by Noah as well as weekly submissions by fans of the project. After Noah finished his project, he has continued to post daily images of skulls created by fans to the site.
Noah 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". On June 2, 2008, Noah made his official last skull #365, though an additional skull labeled #365.25 was posted the day after since 2007 was a leap year. On June 3, 2008 the site was dubbed Skull-A-Day 2.0 and Noah began posting original skull art submissions from readers of the site daily.
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.
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.
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.
