    This week my good friend and amazing artist Ryan K. Peterson discuss the history of makeup effects! Special thanks goes out to @scumchoir for the suggestion. We chat about how we became interested in makeup effects as kids and then discuss our nerdy knowledge of makeup effects starting from the early days of horror film makeup of Lon Chaney in the 1920's, Jack Pierce (and others) in the 1930's, the advent of foam latex appliances, and the many innovations of the godfather of modern makeup effects, Dick Smith up through the 1970's and more. This is part 1 of two episodes on the history of makeup effects! Part 2 will be next week!

    Also, a quick life update.

Not just for Dark Artists and Dark Art Collectors

If you’re a creator or appreciate the creative process, you’ll enjoy this podcast. Chet’s laid back style and the interesting collection of artists who appear on the show will entertain and educate. Try it out.

Malaclypse_the_Younger ,

Still Great Content!

Chet Zar continues to delivery great content with fascinating guest artists, despite the loss of co-host Mike Correll (episodes #1-89). Zar’s laid back style and reliable weekly content always leave me with deep thoughts, and carries me through my creative work seamlessly! If you miss Correll check out his podcast “The New Archaic Revival”, also on iTunes.

BridgetMoonGoddess ,

Game changer

Listen. And then get to work.
