Welcome to Skelton Crew Studio LLC!
It’s the exclusive home to officially licensed replicas from “Locke & Key” by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, “CHEW” by John Layman and Rob Guillory, “Mouse Guard,” written and drawn by David Petersen, Mike Mignola’s “Hellboy” and “B.P.R.D.”, “Revival” by Tim Seeley and Mike Norton, “Huck” by Mark Millar and Rafael Albuquerque, “Head Lopper” written and drawn by Andrew MacLean, “The Squidder” written and drawn by Ben Templesmith, “The Stuff of Legend,” written by Mike Raicht and Brian Smith and drawn by C.P. Wilson III AND Alan Robert’s “Killogy.”
Phew, that’s a mouthful.
In late 2015, we also launched our own line, The Skelton Crew Collection: Baby and toddler clothes and accessories inspired by whimsy, the macabre and our little monsters, with artwork by C.P.
The studio is behind high-quality collectibles that range from pewter keys and artifacts to resin mini-busts and plush toys. Much of the metalwork is proudly made in the USA with each piece carefully hand-finished.
Israel Skelton founded the studio in 2008 and it was behind IDW’s SDCC exclusive Ghost Key in 2009. Israel has been sculpting and creating for more than 30 years, ever since making Thor’s hammer out of a CedarWorks swing set mallet. (He wrapped the handle in medical tape, colored it with a brown marker and ruled the backyard.)
Israel makes his home in rural Maine with his wife Kathryn, two sons and one loafing corgi. When he’s not sculpting, he enjoys amassing hardcover graphic novels, collecting original comic art and bare knuckle brawling.
