WerewolfWednesday.Here I am laying some hair an my first attempt at mass producing latex masks. I think I made about 10 of this guy. I guess you can’t call that mass produced. When I worked on the first Star Wars I threw this mask into the mix thinking it would be in the far background I was horrified to see him in a big close up in the cantina scene. I was glad when George cut him out in a later release .

Can you tell who it is suppose to be? It’s not me though it kind of looks like me and could have been me if they would have asked me to be in the film. #RickBaker #oilpainting #WorkInProgress
