The macabre has always been a part of Dan Flanders's life. His earliest memories are of drawing skeletons at a young age. Theatrics also played a large role in shaping the career of this madman. Weaving the darkness into form, Dan crafts elegant and hideous forms from many different materials.
He attended Savannah College of Art and Design, in Georgia, and soon after began his business Manic Mart. Under his Infinity Skull banner, he primarily makes masks of monstrous fashion, though he lends his talents to any style or medium.
Manic Mart has rallied under the Awesome Shop, to further increase the quality and reach of Dan's products. Most of his masks start off as recycled cardboard, where he uses origami techniques, combine with adhesives, magic, and paperclay, to create a fully formed and functional piece of art.
October Theater Production, Inc.'s Masquerade Ball - 2015
I first met Dan at the 2017 Green Mountain Comic Expo. I saw his creations and was instantly curious and wanted to know more. I happen to be in the middle of a rewrite of my short film "Where is She?" and thought that his masks could be interwoven easily into the story. I started up a dialogue with Dan and we quickly built a rapport. Dan was intrigued by my story and I with his evil crafts.
Dan is currently making 6 masks for my short film. I've only seen sketches at this point. I'm eagerly awaiting the finished product and can't wait to see what they look like on set.
