Making Monsters (day 2) trailer


Making Monsters day 2 from Graham Smith on Vimeo.

2 super talented sculptors from San Diego are making a full body, special fx, horror creature suit in their garage studio, and asked me to film the process. I cut this 34 second trailer from one of the episodes, so you can see what artists do when they're let out their cages.

These guys started with 150 pounds of clay, in 12 boxes, and worked very, very quickly. The sculptors, Jason Hite and Jonathan Fuller are about 9 hours into their work in this trailer, and are already beginning to define details.

Day 1 was the "rough in" phase. Day 2 began the refinement, and next time, I think they're going to sculpt the head! Looking forwards to showing you all the steps in this epic project. Better go charge my camera battery.  :)

AZ Press Club Award Winner- Officer Friendly




D7. Statewide illustration, drawn

First Place 
Phoenix New Times: “Officer Friendly”
Illustrator: Graham Smith

Art Director: Peter M. Storch  

“What sets this illustration apart is its impact. The use of red makes this very powerful and plays directly to the most extreme possible perception of police officers readers can have, which is the perception the story explores. It is timely and powerful.”
