I’m into creatures. My primary passion is sculpting followed by prop fabrication and concept design. I have extensive knowledge in mold making and casting as well as color theory and airbrush applications.
From time to time, I’ll do a more traditional piece that is not concentric with the genre of movie monsters and kaiju theatre. Godzilla is my go to for inspiration and enjoyment. I’m fairly new to 3D printing but I’ve produced some fun pieces that supplement my interest in model building and kit bashing.
Living in Pittsburgh has kept the fires going in the zombie and gore make-up applications. Though I may not post many of the make-ups, from time-to-time, I do enjoy stepping out of my comfort zone to reaffirm my skill-sets in trauma and movie make-up applications.
While conventions are usually not my vibe, I’m a frequent attendee of G-Fest in Chicago and WonderFest in Louisville, Kentucky. If I had a dream job, it would be probably be to work for Toho Studios in Tokyo, Japan and I would gladly learn the language if given the opportunity. As interesting as it may be to work for one of the big studios or shops in California, there’s more fulfillment here in Pittsburgh with the family and ridiculous road network system designed by who I can only assume to be inebriated or disgruntled civil engineers. Come for a visit. You’ll understand within the first hour of being here. But I digress.
ANYWHO, you may see teeth and some eyes on the site but not many. The skillset for creating these props are very specific, time consuming and exists in a very minute realm of the effects work. My friend Massie Kue is probably one of the best artists I know in the world of eyeballs so if you need prop eyes that look more authentic than actual real human eyes (or creature eyes), she’s the one to contact. You can take a look at her work on her site at (TBA).
