Russ Adams is an award winning special effect artist best known for his work on SyFy’s hit television series Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge. When he isn’t creating props and creatures for films like SLC PUNK 2, #SCREAMERS, MONOLITH, and others, he is teaching his craft to a new generation of creature designers at Escape Design FX.
Russ is also the author of the popular how-to series, A Workshop with Russ Adams. His new book, Surviving Reality: This Is Not That Show, is a departure from the how-to series but equally as entertaining. Surviving Reality chronicles his experiences before, during, and after his time on Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge. This book has been hailed as behind the scenes bonus episode.
