Lord of Illusions by EvanCampbell Lord of Illusions by EvanCampbell
This was a sculpture I created for the Clive Barker film "Lord of Illusions."
It never ended up in the final cut but it was still great to be able to render
one of his visions.

Did you ever get a chance to meet Clive Barker? I think Lord ofIllusions was a really neat film; albeit kind of unnerving.

I did get the chance...he came in to look at this sculpture and give the thumbs up or down. He liked it and everything went fine.

I've been really curious about him after I've been reading his A-Z of horror book I picked up for five bucks a couple years back. I bet having a guy like that look your stuff over was pretty intense, no?

Indeed, but I'd be prodding the jellyfish with a stick, because I might get stung. Then again, would I have got stung by the..er....hmm. I don't know what exactly I'd call it.
Would I have got stung by your creation?

Lord of Illusions is one of my favorites!

I really love the sinew and the almost floral suggestions.
It really makes it more disturbing.
I cant help but think of the fun chill I got when I saw the "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" remake in the 80's; the idea of space-spores creating mimics was so creepy.

This sculpture gives me that feeling all over again - like its coagulating and forming itself into a person.
Fun and eerie.

I liked it too...it is kind of the forgotten Clive Barker movie. This sculpture was based off a painting that Clive Barker did, inspired from a dream he had. He would keep what he called a "dream journal" next to his bed. I remember when I was sculpting this he came into the shop to see how the stuff was coming along. He really love my rendering of it (shook my hand) said he thought it was excellent. I did not realize what a big deal that was until way later on - probably due to nerves! He made some drawing trying to explain something - which I later kept.

What an experience!

He's gifted and dare I say; a trendsetter thats often imitated, never duplicated.

Lord of Illusions is really a great film for a lot of different reasons.
Theres an underlying story in it that really is very classic and very strong.
One of my favorite quotes that I use in life often is from that movie:
"..flesh is a trap, but magic sets us free."

So, so cool you got to not only meet him, but obviously connect with him through this rendering.

Like erm. rough, gross, skank... It's a slang word.

As in:

"you ming"
"He was a total minger"
"That smell is minging"

It looks like some weird mutation between plant and mutant animal DNA. I remember the scene where Swann was hallucinating and his friend's faces were peeling away

I can see your creation would have fit the theme of the movie very well.

You probably get this alot, but its deffinately got that Giger feel to it ((my favorite artist btw))
And I know its gotta be difficult to do something for Clive. He's got a wicked imagination. ^^

Lovely job as usual hun
