Casey Love Article

Wow how time flies!  Although, it was published five years ago in the Summer of 2007, it seems like yesterday when I first read this article on Casey Love.

The article itself contains some great shots of Casey's work, and gives a good background of how Mr. Love began his career and his accent into one of the top sculptors and creature designers in the business.

Here are from photos from Casey's site of a few of the masks featured in the article...

Halco Costume Collage

I'm a straight-up sucker for saving images of masks and costumes from Ebay. Last night I had some fun with images I've saved of Halco vacuform masks and costumes and I made this collage. This is what happens when I finish painting some masks at 3am and I decide I'm not quite ready for bed...

Here's the source images I used...

Halco Witch Costume

Halco Rajah Costume
