Special Effects Makeup

Last year I created an animatronic mask along with Six suits and slip on masks for a feature film called "Night Beasts" (silicone skin over fiberglass skull) It turned out pretty good as seen in the frame grabs.

Real Alien

Realalien was a product I designed and manufactured. They stood about 16 inches tall and where cast in a Polyresin. 1500 of them where sold all over the world.

I was inspired by the detail in the Lord of the Ring sculptures by Sideshow Toys. Cast resin, 10 inches tall.

God the Dyslexic Dog

My friend Phill Philipson and Alex Nino created a great comic called "God the Dyslexic Dog" So I created this sculpture for their booth at the San Diago Comic con. I'm pleased how it came out considering I had a week to create.

Rug Rats gone Wild

On Rugrats Gone wild I spent about a year doing Vis-dev to try to give the style a newer look but still try to stay true to the original style set by the studio. Unfortunatly they didn't make it to the final film.


On Disney's Dinosaur I was the first artist on the project and was asked to create some concept work to help get it greenlite. This was the first of eight. (gouache)

This is another Dinosaur peice.

This was a one day concept peice for a live action film called War of the Dead.


These where two of ten concept pieces for a live action feature staring Clive Owens. I had two weeks to do all the artwork so I used a technique where I photographed myself in all the poses and used photoshop to composite and create the final images. Worked out good for the deadline.
