Monster Makers: Graham C. Schofield

Professional Make-up artist, mold-maker, teacher, sculptor, painter, voice-over actor, impressionist, part time science-scientist and full time weirdo, Graham C. Schofield is one bizarre dude.

From Man-Thing to life-casting, from materials to methods, from ghost removal to the canopies of Old India and from The Twilight Zone to The Twilight Zone, Graham’s a guy who can drop some serious knowledge bombs on the Hiroshima in your head. Don’t let em do this. At least not without a little preparation.

Graham also happens to be a really good friend of mine, a Halloweener for life and a huge fan of The Shindig. +3 to relevance.

What’s more? All you gorehounds can catch a glimpse of this madman in action as a cast member of the newest season of Face/Off.

Tune in each week to see the strange creations of Graham and company Tuesdays @ 9/8c on the Syfy Channel.

If your gratification is a bit more immediate, you can head down to the International Make-Up Artists Trade Show  in Los Angeles today, where Graham and fellow Make-Up artist and Face/Offer Corinne Foster will be demonstrating a silicone prosthetic application on none other than my girlfriend Rachel.

You can check out more of Graham’s work @ GCSFX.com or hear the sound of his ridiculous voice @ realiveradio.com.

But, let’s be honest. All I really care about is this; What’s his favorite Shindigger? Well, while it’s hard to speak for a man like Graham, I can say with confidence he’d probably select Track 3: Halloween by King Diamond. Though I’m sure Whodini’s Haunted House of Rock might take a close second.

Be sure to check out this season of Face/Off for some bold and extreme nonsense from Mr. Graham.

Now, as my lawyer he advises you to take 2 hits from the little brown jar in his bag. Not too much though. Just a taste.

Monster Makers: Mikey Rotella

rotella_monsterpalooza

Jubojitsu Expert Strikesman and sculptor extraordinaire Mikey Rotella is one monster makin’ sonofabitch. Hell, there’s 7 different monsters right behind him, in this photo from last year’s Monsterpalooza.

He’s such a monster makering scumbag that you can even see him on a TV show called “Making Monsters.”

He’s also a damn good friend and a huge fan of the Shindig. A musical prick and horror goofball himself, Mikey’s been instrumental in helping me inflate the playlist from its adequate 5 hour run time to the almost unnecessary 10 hour juggernaut it is today.

Currently, he’s probably singing the Cannibal Holocaust theme as loud as he possibly can while waiting impatiently for the doors to open up at this year’s Monsterpalooza, April 12th, 13th, 14th @ the Burbank Marriott.

SoCal followers, head on down and check out Mikey’s masks and all kinds of art from tons of other incredibly talented horror industry professionals all weekend long. They serve booze!

Tell ‘em Halloween Shindig sent ya and he’ll sing you Dream Warriors absolutely FREE!

I’ll be posting some more photos of Mikey’s work, but you can check out his portfolio here and see even more monsters.
