This will be post #1 for Janique of Hergoodbag.com’s coverage of IMATS New York 2011. There were many companies who specialized in fantasy, face art and fx makeup. I was amazed. These artist are beyond talented. A few of the companies that were represented were


There was also a class Zombies 101: Intro to Creature Creation instructed by Tate Steinsiek.

Class Description:

finalist Tate Steinsiek will discuss quick and easy solutions for creating hordes of the undead. Using multiple models and covering different levels of work with standard make-up and appliances, Steinsiek will demonstrate a range of looks and techniques.

I was truly impressed with the craftsmanship of all the artist from the various FX and Face Art companies.
