I have incredibly fond memories of Monster Maker Journal Magazine. I must have read through it's pages several dozen times. The issue sprung up on a shelf at my local comic book store in early 1995. It couldn't have arrived at a better time, as I had just begun my journey into making latex masks a few months prior to it's release. The magazine was packed with how-to info and loads of pictures. Much to my delight, it even contained several photos of monster masks by other aspiring artists and established professionals.
The monster mask fun began on page 14 with a profile on up-and-coming artist Jeff Prettyman...
