'Face Off' Finalist Derek Garcia on Dragons and Thugs

By January 19, 2013

Did you see this week's premiere episode for "Face Off" Season 4? I thought it was incredibly strong, and I loved the both the "Queen" Foundation Challenge aboard the Queen Mary, as well as the wonderfullly paired "Goblin King" Spotlight challenge. Even as Season 4 gets moving, I got the chance recently to interview a few of Season 3's talented finalists, from Laura Tyler on her exquisite, carefully crafted creations, to, most recently, fellow finalist Derek Garcia. While Laura often brought a distinctive classical delicacy and sculptural detail to her work, Garcia's designs, like those of Season 2 winner Rayce Bird, were often inspired by his other skills as a tattoo artist. Learn more about Garcia's experiences on the show in the interview here. What do you think of the current season?
