Tony Gardner

Sculptor / Character Designer

Tony Gardner has been a makeup effects artist for over 30 years. After starting his solo career creating the Half Corpse for “The Return of the Living Dead” at the ripe old age of 21, he and his wife Cindy formed Alterian Studios, which has been responsible for the creation of many iconic makeup effects characters through the years, including Liam Neeson as Darkman, Doug Jones as Billy Butcherson from “Hocus Pocus,” and Bruce Campbell as Evil Ash from “Army of Darkness.” His love of masks has extended from his own early Alterian Ghost Factory mask line (which spawned the “Scream” mask), through the design and creation of “Happy Death Day’s” Baby-Faced mask, the Killer mask for “Hellfest,” and Daft Punk’s iconic robot disguises.

We are honored to have Tony on our team!
