The Hollywood Master Who Painted Angelina Jolie’s Eyes

Visual effects in movies and TV usually involve more than meets the eye. But Cristina Patterson’s work is exactly what meets the eye. She hand-paints designs onto what she calls “a very, very tiny canvas”—a contact lens—to create crazy ocular looks for dozens of genre films. Without Patterson’s lenses, Angelina Jolie’s glare in Maleficent wouldn’t be nearly as menacing (nor would have Jamie Foxx’s as Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2). Here, Patterson shares insight on some of her favorite “paintings.”
