Monster City Studios


These projects are from my time working for Monster City Studios based in Fresno, CA. Brought on as a temp in October 2015 and hired full time in February 2016, I have been included in many steps of the fabrication process of themed environments.  So far, I have done digital modeling, mold making, casting, sculpting, and painting.  All projects have been done in teams with my contributions to each job listed in the description.  Click the image to go to each project's gallery.

Cool Mini or Not Frost Giant Taking a little over two weeks to build, this miniature 2 inch game piece was scaled up to over 10 feet tall.  The piece was scanned into the computer where I had to clean it up in Zbrush.  It was milled out, given a steel frame, and coated in polyurea before paint.  He will be found traveling to many comic conventions in Georgia.

Idlewild Castle A huge team effort, we are asked to design and fabricate a new castle attraction for Idlewild out in Pennsylvania.  Currently being installed, this 50' X 50' castle housed a functioning sword in the stone, animatronic dragon mascot fountain, and a town facade.  I mainly sanded the foam trim and tower pieces before hard coating.  I was also in charge of molding and laying fiberglass for Duke, the animatronic dragon statue.  My largest contribution was the fabrication of the foam town facade.

Bakman Water A few years ago, this client ordered a floating faucet fountain to display at his booth at the local fair.  He brought it back this year because he wanted to add some more flare to the aged piece.  I helped out with the cleanup of the barrel emblem piece, which I then molded and cast.  I also sanded the faucet smooth since the original had a stippled finish and hollowed it out to install solar lights.  The logo was vacuformed form a milled piece to diffuse the lights behind it.

Surfside Dental Dolphins Surf Side Kid's Dental is an over-the-top beach themed dental office featuring several photo ops and nautical foam sculptures throughout the building.  MCS had done the preexisting sculptures before I was brought on, but Surf Side recently wanted to add more dolphins to the display.  We were asked to make three 4' dolphins that would hang from the ceiling as if they were swimming through the hall.

Stan Mikita This was an excellent way to kick off 2017.  We were asked to make an 8' replica of the Stan Mikita statue from Wayne's World for the NHL All-Star Game.  He received the usual steel skeleton, foam body, and urea shell treatment. Final photo courtesy of the Chicago Tribune
