On Sunday February 13th at 1:00 p.m. Dark Delicacies in conjunction will hold an unveiling of Special Effects Artist Mike Hillâ€™s latest monster creation in their front window. The subject of that unveiling is a SFX secret.
Michael E. Hill dreamed of a fantastic world filled with masked vigilantes, men who transformed into wolves and Islands ruled by giant apes. Mike’s one unique trait was to question how and why these characters looked and behaved the way they do, always over thinking!
“I would ask myself and others crazy questions. What did King Kong do all day, when heâ€™s not fighting dinosaurs and wouldn’t he be scarred from head to toe, with all those prehistoric creatures he had to battle? And really puzzling details like, how come we canâ€™t see Spidermanâ€™s web shooters beneath his costume, or his ears or his underwear? Or stuff that still bugs me to this day, when a werewolf turns back to a man where does all the fur go? Does he lose his teeth fillings? People looked at me as if to say, “Son, you’ve really got problems”
Mike’s artistic visions progressed into 3D sculpture and costume and mask making. Having become one of the worlds leading figure sculptors and a master of capturing the human likeness, his career to date has included figure kit sculpting, wax figures, creature designing, prosthetic make-up, and creating hyper-real character statues. .Mike’s passion still remains the same…over thinking the impossible! Through his art, Mike hopes to share with his audience that little boy’s dreamland and maybe answer some of his own questions.
