Blasts from the past

Still going through old pictures.

I did this Sixth Finger makeup on myself for EquiCon 75.

Unseen by the fans until now this picture shows Lt to Rt Bob Burns, Steve Neill, and Dale Parks. We worked together on a TV show who’s name escapes me now. These were fun time.

Rt to Lt Bob Burns, me, and Gilly. Oh and Doug Jones to the far Rt as Mac. Few people new my shop created Mac and that Bob Burns puppeteered the mouth while Gilly and I moved his lips to form words. We did many fun shoots together and it was always a fun time with Bob and all the jokes about the producers, some which can’t be told online!! LOL!!

And Bob Burns on the Rt and me on the left picking mites and bugs from our fur.

Ricky Schwartz will be missed

Just found out Ricky Schwartz passed away in April. His brother Bobby called me to let me know. He passed away in his sleep from health complications.

I lot of people will have a lot of things to say about Ricky bad and good but I got to tell ya this. If it wasn’t for my meeting of Ricky back in 74 at a San Francisco Star Trek Convention I would have known anyone here, never came to LA, and met some of the great ones that started out my career. I had a lot of great times with Ricky. And many many of you have some famous molds, props, and costumes because of his 5 fingered discount antics. Not to mention the Flying Subs and a few other models. They would have all ended up in the Fox land fill anyway.

Ricky. I owe you for my career, some great times, and great friends I still have today because of you. I never got a Ricky Schartz Award but just knowing you was reward enough.You will be missed. Enjoy the Nexus. It’s got to a better place!

Here’s Ricky at my apartment in Toluca Lake back in 78.

A finished Communion Bust

I finished off the first casting and I was very happy with the paint job until I placed it on my work bench and lite it. For some reason the indoor lights wash out the paint job. The flash pictures help but wash out the detail. Tomorrow I’ll get some pictures outside in day light where I painted it.
