Eric Zapata

Age: 22
Expertise: Sculpting, casting and application
Occupation: Freelance SFX Makeup Artist
From: Austin, TX

Eric grew up loving art, and knew right away after trying makeup FX that he had found his lifelong career. He did everything he could to learn more, from making molds in his garage to attending the Tom Savini school. Following his graduation, Eric landed a job at Precinct 13 working with Bob Kurtzman. In only four years time, Eric has become very knowledgeable in the shop and quite proficient at application, design, sculpting and molding. He sees the show as not just a competition, but a tool to learn more about himself as an artist and a person.
