SF's Super Sexy Art Gallery Plays Host
To Zombie Marionettes & Babies in Jars

I'm pretty sure most of you already know this, but Isotope Enforcer Jared Guenther's other job is doing special effects and make-up for indy films.

Between assisting SFX legend Bob Keene (Hellraiser, Alien, Star Wars), bloodying up soldiers in the WW2 epic Brother's War, making dead-babies-in-jars for Carnies (as well as legions of fans around the world), mutilating crime scene investigators with burning devil-children in Fallen Angels, and his many other acts of random SFX like turning me ugly/beautiful... Mister Guenther always seems to have his hands full making disgusting things.

This last Thursday SF's ultra-hip Space Gallery played host to the Toil & Trouble art exhibition featuring the props, costumes, creepy puppets, and production art from Jared's latest indy flick Story About A Witch (watch the trailer here).

Jared wowed the assembled throngs with his siamese twin babies in jars and a really wonderful zombie marionette. I drank a bunch of mojitos, ate some fantastic cheesecake, skipped the kissing booth, and took a ton of pictures which are now up for your viewing enjoyment at Flickr. Fantastic times!

Go ahead and check out the pictures from the Toil & Trouble show
