Projects: I am constantly working on several projects with my company Kosart Studios. Since 2016, upon joining the IATSE Local 476 Studio Mechanics Chicago, my studio and I have since been primarily working on television shows filming in Chicago. My studio has been creating the make-up FX and sculpting various props primarily for CHICAGO PD Seasons 4 & 5, EMPIRE Seasons 3 & 4, and CHICAGO JUSTICE Season 1, and has also done some make-up FX on CHICAGO FIRE Season 4 and made some props for CHICAGO MED Season 1. We have done several more photography collaborations with world-renown horror photographer Joshua Hoffine and currently gearing up for his first feature film. This has been a great year in that we have worked on many A-List actors including John Malkovich, Jessica Lange, Demi Moore, Taraji Henson, Chris Brown, Taye Diggs, and many more. With many more projects on the horizon in the special effects and commercial sculpture industries for 2018, many of which I cannot yet mention, and a new year of classes and gallery exhibitions to look forward to, I continue to spend time working on my personal fine art sculptures, as well as finding time to getting back to my paintings.
