Cactus Kid


A European ad campaign for Coke's 'Oasis' fruit juice featured a James Dean-esque character known as the 'Cactus Kid.' Without having access to the actor, I helped create the cactus bodysuit, make up appliances and fake Cactus baby. Upon arriving on location in Mexico City, Anthony Julio and myself began straight away with a series of makeup tests to finalize a look production was happy with. Start to finish, we had about a week at STAN WINSTON STUDIO to create all the elements for this series of ads.
