Los Angeles based sculptor and specialty prop artist Tim Baker studied fine arts at Porterville College in California and Set/Lighting design and photo sculpture at Stephen’s College in Columbia, Missouri. He has created puppets and other creatures for film (“Something About Mary”, “Every Dog has his Day”), and for television and commercials. He is also a special effects make-up artist, model maker, graphic artist, and photographer.
These steampunk books are four in a set of six for a graphic novel he is creating. Each book took between 40 – 150 hours to produce and are made of leather, brass, stainless steel, aluminum, river pearls, rivets, hand made paper and parchment, among other things.
