How a Special Effects Makeup Artist Makes a Living
Mariko Lochridge — Odd Jobs
In our video series "Odd Jobs" we track down people following their passion and ask them what it's like to work in their industry, how they make a living, and advice they might have for getting into their field.
Jose Davalos, aka Joo Skellington, is a self-taught special effects makeup artist, costume designer, and plastics sculptor from Mexico known for his breathtaking recreation of Disney characters. When he's not winning international makeup and costume competitions—he recently raked in three top awards at San Diego Comic-Con—Davalos teaches special effects makeup at a school in Mexico.
"Odd Jobs" featuring Joo Skellington was filmed and edited by Mariko Lochridge with reporting provided by Anthony Mars.
