The Creative Genius of Dave the Dead

on September 19, 2008 - 1:46pm

When it comes to haunters, I have a small group of personal favourites. Of those few, there are only a handful whom I would say I admire. Dave the Dead would make that short list.

I pause when I call him a haunter, because really Dave is an artist. His approach to monster making is unique and his attention to detail should be envied. He starts with the most basic materials and lovingly turns them into creatures to be coveted by ghoulies like me. Lawrence, to the left, is a perfect example of this.

Dave can be found on Haunt Forum where he inspires everyone who stumbles across his work. You can do a search for all his posts to find his 'How-To's and attempt to recreate his masterpieces.

If you already hate him for his talent, let me give you more fodder for the fire. Dave is very supportive of other haunters, giving advice to anyone on the forum who asks. He also donates some of his projects to groups in his local community. And he's humble about his talent. Jerk.

I've posted some images below of some of his other creations including (from top left) Crackerjack, Darwin, Icharus, and Clink.


I could fill this whole page with images of his work. Here are links to some more of my favourites.
