Last Thursday, 99 Sudbury hosted the graduation exhibit for the Sheridan College Illustration Program, and the massive event space was quickly packed with excited students, supportive family members and friends, and banquet servers relentlessly hawking trays of potato chips in what was perhaps the most bizarre choice of food I’ve…

The main attraction and one of the part I work on most are the the life-size Tyrannosaurus Rex and Triceratops.
“The battle of the titans is a formidable clash between a Tyrannosaurs Rex and Triceratops as science has proved it happened and happened often. It’s also a show about ecology, the study of organisms and the environment. It is the first time anywhere that so much detail and science has come together in one exhibit with a theme to educate and entertain. The power of our exhibit lies in the fact that it’s seemingly bombastic, action-packed theme leads to an astounding truth about the quiet forces, the perpetual symmetry and balance of nature that can both create giants and send them off to oblivion.”
This is a monster suit I completed along with Chantal Parent, Scott Patterson, and Stacie Moltner in April 2012 as part of my course at Sheridan Tech. I worked on the original concept design, as well as the sculpt and paint job. I was also there to assist during application.
The concept was a man who had been burnt alive and turned into a monster, now returning from the “dead” to do onto others as had been done to him.
The body was sculpted, molded and then cast in foam latex. It was then painted in pax. The teeth were cast from acrylic and the rags were sewn from by Stacie. The armour was made from PVC sheets, and the flame thrower was build by Scott Patterson from found objects.
