Russian Artist Creates Killer Pennywise Snowman
“Do you wanna build a – Jesus f*cking Christ!”
Russian artist artandbis is the mastermind behind this killer creation of Bill Skarsgard’s Pennywise from director Andy Muschietti’s take on Stephen King’s IT and IT: Chapter Two.
The artist told Bored Panda: “I recently heard about a snowman competition and decided to participate. There were 3 categories in the competition: the biggest, the most creative, and the smallest. The winners would win a prize, but victory wasn’t important to me.
He continues: “I needed the temperature outside to be above freezing so that the snow could be carved well. I followed the weather forecast daily, as I was looking forward to that day. It took me several hours to create it. I managed to finish it just before nightfall. Even though the weather was good, it quickly melted and fell apart, so I needed to revive it during filming. Without an assistant, I would sculpt and shoot at the same time.”

Andy Muschietti’s take on Stephen King’s IT centers on seven young outcasts in Derry, Maine, who face their worst nightmare in an ancient, shape-shifting evil that emerges from the sewer every 27 years to prey on the town’s children. Banding together over the course of one horrifying summer, the friends must overcome their own personal fears to battle the murderous, bloodthirsty clown known as Pennywise. If for some reason, you don’t already own the flick on Blu-ray, you can go ahead and snag a copy over on Amazon RIGHT HERE.
