Various original raygun designs I’ve done over the years. The last six pictures are of a gun that I made for a Weta contest (which I won) and is based on the Dr. Grordbort’s universe.
A replica of a Browning M1919 machine gun made of sintra, wood, and PVC, complete with a motorized charging handle. I made this for 1945A, and when you add sound effects and muzzle flashes, the effect is quite convincing.
This is definitely the outlier project of the bunch. But I really wanted a Child’s Play “Good Guy” doll when I was a kid. I researched the heck out of it and made a really accurate replica of the dolls from the movie. The head was cast off an original Chucky doll and the hair was sourced from the same place that the movie got it. The sweater material was knit by a lady I found on Etsy. I custom dyed and silkscreened the overalls. It was so accurate that when they started making new Chucky movies a couple years ago, Universal Studios used the graphic files I drew for the various icons on the clothes to make new material. (NOTE: I don’t make dolls or doll components anymore, so please do not ask.)
There are lots of lightsaber replicas out there nowadays, but I scratch-built these out of metal pipes and hardware store parts years before any licensed versions came out. Everything was hand-cut and shaped with needle files and sandpaper. Nothing was machined or 3D-printed. Adam Savage said that when you’re young, labor is the cheapest commodity and these sabers are definitely a testament to that. I’m very proud that they now reside in his collection.
I’m a big Star Trek fan and have made many props from the show(s) over the years. They are mostly build-ups of kits, but the TOS phaser rifle is completely scratch-built.
My original sculpt of the Twilight Zone “Invader.” It’s considerably more accurate than the Sideshow version (shown below). The Talky Tina doll is a converted Vogue Brikette doll with a custom-made dress.
Jurassic Park Brochure
A passion project of mine from many years ago. These brochures are seen throughout the movie. I cleaned up a scan of a screen-used brochure and recreated all the graphics in Illustrator.
