The Guy
My name is Adam Koot-Bascomb, and I do everything and that pertains to designing, drawing, and physically building creepy characters and creatures of an inhuman persuasion.  In other words, I make MONSTERS.

You can check out some of my work on Portfolio. Links to social media are there too!

The Origin
Horror and fantasy and the beasts within them have been my obsession since I first grabbed a crayon.  And Initially I had every intent of becoming a concept artist, so I could be the one to make all those great monstrosities. I even got my BFA in illustration at Syracuse University, and left with a portfolio almost completely devoid of human beings.  However at some point in college, thanks to several cosplayer friends, I found I had a far larger passion for physically building characters then I did for just letting them sit on the page.


My very first cosplay that started the whole thing!
 
Now here we are six years later, and I've been fortunate enough to have several of my costumes go viral, and even appear in a Halloween special for the 25th anniversary of the film Hocus Pocus! I still produce 2D works routinely, but my focus has largely become using my skills as an illustrator and creature designer to come up with my own designs (and a bit of reimagined cosplay ideas...) with intent to see them realized full scale.

The Plan
The goal for this Patreon is simple: get some consistent support to cover the fun monthly expenses like rent, gas, insurance, etc. so I can afford the raw materials that go into making all of these suits and resume pumping out content with more consistency, rather then just barely sliding by every 30 days.  I aim to make this creature builder career dream into a reality, and the more chances I get to bring a character to life, the better my skills become, the more impressive the projects become, and the closer I get to doing this full time!
