Apr 11, 2013


Join us at MONSTERPALOOZA this weekend April 12 - 14th in Burbank at the Burbank Marriott & Convention Center. At our booth all weekend long, we'll have LIVE demonstrations of painting, sculpture, makeup application and drawing with some of the same monster-makers you've come to know in our popular online video tutorials.


Starting on SATURDAY morning at 11AM with BRUCE SPAULDING FULLER. Bruce will demonstrate an extraordinary Zombie makeup application using techniques and tips that you're certainly not going to want to miss. Click HERE for a video preview!

After Bruce, you'll have a real treat as DAN LUVISI will be sharing an incredibly badass drawing and you'll get to watch him make his Wacom magic every step of the way.

But don't worry, even if you come SUNDAY, you won't have missed all the fun. At 11AM, master painter JAIME S. GROVE paints a resin Zombie bust before your very eyes in all its ghoulish, rotting glory. See a sculpture come to life through paint before your very eyes!

In the afternoon, not one but TWO sculptors have agreed to show of the finer points of their craft. At 2PM, we're proud to have with us again, the guru of clay himself, DON LANNING, who pops by for an hour or so to show us all a thing or two about how he turns something lumpy and inanimate into something emotional and thrilling!

And additionally on Sunday at 3PM, multi-talented, generalist and utility player, TIMOTHY MARTIN will take you through a display of just some of the reasons virtually every major shop in Hollywood calls on Tim Martin when they need reliable quality FAST.
