My interest in creature art began many years ago when I first saw the dark crystal. Since then I have always been painting and drawing, then around 15 years ago I discovered sculpting and I haven't looked back. I spent some time studying at the Arts institute at Bournemouth (now the Arts University at Bournmouth) on their degree in modelmaking for design and media. Once graduated I worked on a few movies and TV programs doing all kinds of jobs from miniatures to props to prosthetics. I eventually decided to step out of the industry in 2010 so I could work on my own stuff. It's now 2015 and I am about to embark on my second tour of duty in the film and entertainment industry here in the UK. As well as this I recently set up a very successful event designed to celebrate the art of creatures. The event is Called Creaturegeddon and is held each August on the outskirts of London.

Hi all, if you haven't heard of Harbinger Down, it's a movie that is to be written and directed by Alec Gillis from award winning make up FX company ADI (Aliens, Tremors, the thing). They are looking for backing on Kickstarter so if you have ever dreamt of a monster movie with all practical FX then take a look and if you can back the project.

Thanks

Peter

Hi guys,
I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your kind words, it really does make me want to get better and make more monsters. Sorry I haven't replied earlier, I don't really know how to use DA properly even after 5 years!!
