RIP Bernie Wrightson, Master of Horror
We were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of our dear friend, Bernie Wrightson. Bernie’s work is a huge part of us, and his art played a vital role in the very creation of our company. As individual artists his work was an endless source of revelation and wonder, and the first ever piece we created as a fledgling company was a Wrightson inspired sculpt – which sits with pride in the entrance of our facility as both homage to the great artist who inspired us, but also as a daily reminder of the wonderful man who we were proud to call a friend.
His art motivated us and informed us. Numerous pieces inspired by Bernie’s artistic vision grace our walls here at Sideshow HQ, and he remains a constant influence and inspiration to our artists and sculptors. It’s safe to say, that without Bernie, we just wouldn’t be who we are.
We were honored to know him, and our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. There was no-one quite like Bernie, and he will be sorely missed. Much love from the entire Sideshow team.
