Rubberhead Volume 1

Prepare to take a journey into the insane mind of one of Hollywood’s most legendary and controversial Special FX artists, Steve Johnson.  From sculpting Slimer from Ghostbusters while strung out on cocaine, to disguising Michael Jackson so the King of Pop could go into public, to hiding out in the jungles of Costa Rica after losing tens of millions of dollars in one day, Johnson’s journey is an unbelievable ride through the mind of a mad effect’s genius. 


Join Steve on a time traveling journey through his life as he observes his insane achievements as well as his failures of epic proportions.  Johnson’s uniquely creative writing turns his life story into a beautiful narrative that will keep you wanting more…thankfully, this is a multi-volume series.

Rubberhead Volume 2

The insane journey of illustrious Special FX artist Steve Johnson continues in Volume II; that’s right, more drugs, more sex and more stories from some of Hollywood’s greatest movies.  This time, Steve’s beautiful and unique writing style takes us on a haunting journey about never being able to get over a friend who took his own life while working on Fright Night.  From his own plastic surgery obsession to working on the ill-fated Nicholas Cage Superman movie to being fired from the set of Predator to being sucked into a graphic novel, Steve’s story is legendary.


Join Steve as he continues traveling through his life as he observes his insane achievements as well as his failures of epic proportion.  Johnson’s uniquely creative writing turns his life story into a wild ride that you just can’t stop.  Thankfully, there is more volumes to come!
