The Flag Five Flock Flair for Amazon Studio’s The Tick. These were featured prominently in season 2 episodes “In the Woods” and “Choose Love”

I was the lead artist for these props which came out very well. The “watch face” was a 3-D print out and everything else was molded and cast by me. I had to create everything, even the watch bands which had to be made to fit the special shape of the hinge on the watch.

Some pieces were painted to give more detail and a lighting effect was added by one of the shows lighting technicians. My friend Erin assisted me with some of the assembly and did a great job.

I am very happy they got as much screen time as they did. The final episode of the season even opens up with a close up of the prop.

Robot arm made for Amazon Studio’s The Tick. Starting Peter Serafinowicz and Griffin Newman.

There was an actual stunt actor hidden within the arm. I worked on this along with three other prop artists. I was in charge of a good deal of the sculpting, painting, and mold making.

Sinornithosaurus


This member of the raptor family is a species indigenous to parts of China.  I helped a team of paliosculptors create this replica out of polyurethane using molds made from actual dinosaur fossils on loan from a museum in China. Unlike what most people believe raptors rarely grew larger than six feet in length.

Several large food items, a pickle slice, gherkin, and bung, all carved from foam then coated in polyurethane and airbrushed.  Two other artists and myself worked on the sculpting of these and the paint was base coated by my friend and details were added by me with an air brush.

I am told these were used in a commercial although I do not know what for.
