The Art of Simon Lee

"Simon Lee is in a category all by himself. His sense of drama and raw power make him the Frazetta of monster sculpting and the elegance and specificity of his designs give his creations gravity and realism. A true master!"

Pacific Rim, Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy

Before becoming a full-time sculptor, Simon operated his own web design and programming business under the company name of SPIDERZERO INTERAVTIVE MEDIA. When he first started posting his sculptural work online back in 2007, he simply used the screen name SPIDERZERO, and that moniker has stuck to this day.
