James Hall

Los Angeles. California


     I have made fake corpses for doctors to dissect and study, carved half-ton pumpkins for TV contests, and sculpted more clay than I could ever hope to add up. From engineering a medical trainer to airbrushing a giant gourd, the inspiration for all of this has been the films that I grew up watching.
