Sculptor Bryan Moore, who began his career in the '80s as an effects artist on films like the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise and TV series like Monsters and Tales from the Darkside, has also put his skills to work in the world of toys and collectibles, including a gig with Mattel Toys. Over a decade ago, Moore launched his own business, Arkham Studios, and now provides prototypes and final products for clients like Universal, Mattel, BMW, Jakks Pacific and Burger King.
Now the studio is also selling high-end collectibles, with a classy line of “literary and occult figurines,” many based on the works of H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe, as well as portraits of the authors themselves, and other real-life personalities like occultist Aleister Crowley and Church of Satan founder Anton LaVey.
Most of the statues in his catalog are cast in polymer resin with bronze-tone finish and are around 10 to 12 inches tall, with price tags mainly in the $200-300 range. For serious collectors, these would look pretty sweet on a bookshelf or mantelpiece. Check out his full catalog here.
In related news, Moore has launched a kickstarter project to fund the permanent establishment of a life-size bust of H.P. Lovecraft in the author's home town of Providence, Rhode Island this year. You can learn more about that project here.
