Stan Winston 1946 – 2008

June 16, 2008

Special effects master and makeup artist Stan Winston passed away last night at the age of 62 after a seven-year struggle with multiple myeloma, according to a rep from Stan Winston Studio.

Winston began doing gargoyle makeup for the 1972 TV movie, Gargoyles. From there he would do makeup for such movies as The Wiz, The Thing, Edward Scissorhands, Pearl Harbor, A.I., and Constantine. He’s more renown, however, at being the special effects guy for Aliens, Leviathan, The Relic , Jurassic Park, Predator and the recent Iron Man.

Truly a very sad day, but what a legacy he leaves behind.

My Heart goes out to his family at this sad time.
