Rubberhead: Volume 1

Steve Johnson

Prepare to take a journey into the insane mind of one of Hollywood's most legendary and controversial Special FX artists, Steve Johnson. From sculpting Slimer from Ghostbusters while strung out on cocaine, to disguising Michael Jackson so the King of Pop could go into public, to hiding out in the jungles of Costa Rica after losing tens of millions of dollars in one day, Johnson's journey is an unbelievable ride through the mind of a mad effect's genius.

Join Steve on a time traveling journey through his life as he observes his insane achievements as well as his failures of epic proportions. Johnson's uniquely creative writing turns his life story into a beautiful narrative that will keep you wanting more...thankfully, this is a multi-volume series.

Behind the Scenes Photos, Never Seen Before from:

Ghostbusters, Magnolia, Scooby Doo 2, Lord of Illusions, Blade II, Dreamcatcher, Jarhead, The Stand, and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

In addition, there is the crazy concept art and FX tests from movies that Steve...almost worked on, which includes, Ghost Rider, Zathura, I am Legend, Creature From the Black Lagoon, Spider-Man III, Hulk, Where the Wild Things Are, as well as rare pictures of Jean-Claude Van Damme as the Predator!

Praise for this book

"A 'how to do make-up' book this is not. But a free wheeling, hallucinogenic roller coaster tale of movie making, fame, fortune and drug abuse." -John Landis.
