Devil’s Rejects Star – Bill Moseley and Trick or Treat Studios

We had a very nice surprise this weekend at Monsterpalooza when the great Bill Moseley stopped by to pickup a Gruesome mask and say hello to the gang at Trick or Treat Studios.  Bill is a big fan of Eric Pigors’ Toxictoons and was thrilled to see that we were offering a number of Toxictoons masks.  Bill picked up a Gruesome and took a few pics with Chris.

Thanks for stopping by Bill!  We love your movies and hope to work with you :-)

Johnny Ace Studios Joins Trick or Treat Studios

We are thrilled to announce that Johnny Ace and Kali Verra from Johnny Ace Studios has join the design team at Trick or Treat Studios.

A little background on Jonny Ace and Kali Verra:

Johnny Ace not only earned his “official rat fink artist” title from Ed “Big Daddy” Roth for 20 years of loyal service, but continues to honor the spirit of Roth Studios in his work. He was one of the originators of the punk flyer/poster artform and has worked in such varied fields as the skateboard industry, comics, toy prototypes, computer games, and too much more than this space will allow! He counts as inspiration for such legends as Ed “Newt” Newton, Mouse!, Wally Wood, Eric Stanton, Johnny Craig, Basil Wolverton, Tom Kelly, Basil Gogos, Tom Sutton, Ed “Big Daddy” Roth, and others.

Kali Verra’s artistic range includes traditional pinstriping, graphic design, glamour and fx makeup, airbrush, animation, sculpting, and more. She was taught the pinstriping trade by Roth and used a mack brush given to her by him until it was “on it’s last three hairs”. Kali draws inspiration from such varied sources as Kenneth “Von Dutch” Howard and Ed “Big Daddy” Roth to William S. Burroughs to the unwholesome trinity of Bava/Argento/Fulci. She also has a soft spot for the hokey side of the occult. She is currently obsessed with getting her hands on more guitars!

We are launching two masks this year from Johnny Ace Studios, Frankenfink and the amazing Surf Kook.
