Thrake mold made today

No pictures, molds are really boring. This took way longer to do than I had hoped for. But between an infected tooth, it’s removable and 5 days of CGI hell with a client sometimes these things happen. Besides the client is an old friend and the CGI was fun sort of. Plus he threw some green screen work at me to.

Next I pour up the first Sixth Finger mask. A Thrake master. And finish the big Seaview. Fun week ahead!

A long time ago in a Galaxy far, far, away…

This is the test make up I created and later wore in the opening of Laser Blast minus the eye contacts and teeth. Looks like yesterday. Feels like yesterday too. Notice the Star Wars pin they gave out when the movie first opened. May the Force be with you. So far for me it has been and I’m most grateful!!

Thank a vet on Memorial Day

To be perfectly blunt. Remember. Memorial Day is about the Veterans. Not barbeque’s, sports, soccer and family outings. It’s about the men and women that fought for you to have the freedom to do all that stuff on this 3 day weekend. If you’re out and about and see a vet stop and shake his or her hand and thank them. I saw a WW2 Vet the other day in Home Depot. He was a medic in the marines in the pacific theater. How did I know? He was in a wheel chair and proudly wore a cap with WW2 vet on it. Do it! You’ll have met a real hero.

It’s so important to them. Waether you believe in the good fight or not they did and their reasons for doing it was to protect you form the bad guys. And that they did.

Thanks to all vets that have served to protect us and our way of life!

Thrake mask revisited

My old school friend Mike McLeod dreamed up this character for one of his books. Originally it had 5 eyes but somewhere along the line I made a mask based on it for a TV show which later led to a Mask company selling them. They called it Seemore. Recently the fans of mask collecting found out I was the original sculptor and asked if I’d bring it back. And I am. But he’s a bit different once again.

Here’s the original mask based on Mike’s design I did in the early 70s.

And here’s the mask I made in the 80s for a show I did in Japan. Foam rubber with moving brows and eyes.

And here’s the rough clay sculpture started of the new mask. More soon.

Paul Gentry finds more of the Past

Paul took a lot of pictures back in the 70s when I was starting out. Here’s a few more. This was my first Gorilla suit Paul on the left and David Ayres who is an old friend and I first met him when working at Don Post in the early 70s.
