Sculptor & Creature Designer
NOTE: We’re sorry to announce that Mike Hill had to cancel his appearance at WonderFest 2018 due to work commitments. We hope Mike will be able to come back when the timing is better.
WonderFest is pleased to announce the return of legendary kit sculptor/classic monster portraiture artist/makeup and creature designer Mike Hill!
Mike took the modeling hobby by storm with his dynamic, accurate and loving sculpts of Universal and Hammer horror characters in the resin heyday of the 90’s, having kits produced and sold by some of the finest companies on both sides of the pond.
Mike shortly moved on to (literally) bigger projects in film, TV and fine art and his special effects work has been featured in APOCALYPTO, MORTAL KOMBAT X, THE WOLFMAN, MEN IN BLACK 3, and most recently Guillermo del Toro’s acclaimed THE SHAPE OF WATER! His breathtaking full-scale silicone figure sculptures of classic monsters—and monster-makers ranging from Jack Pierce to Rick Baker to Ray Harryhausen—have been featured in museum exhibits and found their way into acclaimed collections around the world as well.
We’ll be welcoming Mike back to the ‘Fest to discuss his work in all scales, his unmatched ability to project life into rubber and plastic, and his upcoming retrospective book project RAISED BY MONSTERS, too!
