I do what I did as a hobby as a kid, you know, and make a living at it. And I just feel like I'm one of the luckiest guys in the world 'cuz I get paid to make toys and play with them.
When I do a mask, I do try to put a lot of character and a lot of expression into the sculpt.
I find it kind of disturbing when people cheer when someone just gets stabbed brutally.
So many of my dreams were to actually be able to make a living of what I did as a hobby.
I hate wasting time or money and that happens all the time for no good reason, and then people save money by skimping on the important things.
The first time I made myself up, I was looking at my reflection in the mirror and it wasn't me looking back. It allowed me to do things I couldn't do as myself. I found out how powerful that was and how much that can mean to an actor.
It's a funny relationship that makeup artists have. I always feel kind of like a dentist. People look at me and think of pain.
I've said this so many times but there's a magic when you have a really good actor in a really good makeup.
I love making scary faces, that's just how I grew up.
I used to have to save my allowances to buy a quart of rubber to make a mask, and it's how I spent all my free time.
I'm not really listed anywhere; I don't know how people find me!
It's fun doing new things.
The problem I have with schools is, people are taught, 'This is how you do this.' They're not taught about why you do this.
Sometimes we think of a creature like a person in a suit, but then you have limitations of two eyes and two legs - they have to see and breathe. I got more into puppetry because it offered more possibilities.
I always wanted to make aliens that looked like '60s aliens.
