This year's MONSTERPALOOZA at the the Burbank Marriott Hotel was another overwhelming show of large crowds and more monsters than you could spend a week looking at.
In the theater, Scott Essman presented a talk on Jack Pierce. Sadly, it was not listed nor advertised on the schedule of events.
Jack Pierce's influence was evident in a few displays. The artwork above and below is by Aaron Kai. The mummy sculpt was about 2 feet high, and the disturbing but life-like Frankenstein Monster was life-sized.
