I finished painting this little 1/6 scale offering sculpted by artist John Desser a few weeks ago. It's a study of a character named, Cropsy from the 1981 slasher film, the Burning. Cropsy was the victim of a summer camp prank gone horrifically wrong resulting in terrifyingly disfiguring burns all over his body; most notably his face. And of course, he comes back to pick the culprits off one by one.Get with John at: email@example.com to see about his cool pieces that are available.

This is a piece called Mr. Wrinkles, sculpted by artist Jon Payne. A few months ago I happened upon photos of this sculpture, and it instantly concurred with my interests. Everything was right about this piece. I took a trip out to California for Monsterpalooza last month, and I had the good fortune of running into Mr. Wrinkles at Jon Payne's table. I had actually totally forgotten about the piece, (I had assumed that it was a one-off), so unexpectedly seeing it there at the show was a big surprise, and I instantly picked up a casting. I'm going to work on this piece in between some other projects that I have going on, so I wanted to share the unpainted resin shots of this creepy and curious piece. Enjoy.
