News:
I'm trying not to spam without uploading new art. I really kind of wish I didn't have to have everything PHOTOGRAPHED to submit it, like back in my digital days... But I do have one new creative work to share.

:iconmelissafindley: MelissaFindley has held a Strange Sights contest, now closed, in which she sought stories for certain paintings of hers. At one point I dropped by her page and a particular painting didn't yet have any entries listed beneath it, which I thought rather a crime as it was gorgeous, mythologically relevant, and generally provocative of thought. Just as I was arguing to myself the many stories that might be made of such an image... something clicked between my sleep-deprived state, the music I was listening to, and the snow.

So I pulled up a text file and started typing. And I looked up and hours had passed and there was this short story sitting without intent or purpose on my hard drive, and I decided I'd send it in, and maybe it'd be some good to someone of the target audience the internet tends to provide.

And... um... it won third. :faint:

Strange Sights Stamp by MelissaFindley

I strongly recommend reading the other entries, because they're AMAZING, and done by actual writers and not maskmakers who've been struggling with study abroad applications and Chinese homework and getting their rooms clean, and they totally blew me away. Free excellent fantasy fiction and poetry! What's to lose?

So I'm on rather a high, but I had to share it, and I'd like to see everybody get the comments they deserve on their writing (and I lost my Chinese textbook so homework's not an option). Speaking of which, I'm dithering over whether I ought move mine to my main gallery. I feel really awkward about posting non-mask-related art up here at dA except in scraps.

In other news, everything's in bloom here, which means photo ops this Sunday or so ought to me marvelous. I'm going to fight for a shoot of the fairy bodice with the ivy circlet and the fey lady mask - I cannot BEAR having what's arguably my biggest project sitting OFFLINE for nearly a year. Given that I'm trying to do a shoot, though, I wish my hair'd perk up - I'm suspecting an infestation of small, troublesome, sock-loving critters around here, with the way my hair's behaving and the fact that my most vitally necessary textbook has just gone flat missing. It's not as if I've invited them in. Quite. Maybe I ought to salt the threshold - it's not as if they're doing me much good to offset all the trouble.

Soon to come:
(Seriously. This list does have a purpose. They are COMING.)
- Ivy Circlet
- Fairy Bodice (as opposed to the Fey bodice I have in the works)
- a Fey Lady mask
- a few Bauta shots
- a pair of new Jesters
- a Columbina or two
- a new Rosetta (I love this one)

About the Masks:
Generally speaking, the masks are painted formed leather, usually in a single layer. They're hand-sculpted with no mold, and occasionally surface carving or tooling is employed. They are lined in suede and unvarnished on the inner face to preserve the natural breathing quality of the leather for comfort. The outer face is painted and water-resistant. By virtue of the quality of materials, they tend to be reasonably durable, gently flexible, and very lightweight.

Commission Information:
If you like any of the masks in my gallery or would like a custom mask, please feel free to ask. All sales are by commission - very rarely do I have extra masks laying around for sale, because if they aren't created with an owner in mind I tend to get too attached, and because I have precious little spare time. (The good news is it means more versatility in what you can request.) My availability for commission varies tremendously because I have a full-time life entirely outside of artwork - 80% of the year I am cramming any art I do into a 27-hour-a-day schedule. However, I am open for inquiry at any time. If you are a dA member, you can write me a note; otherwise, you can contact me through my website, whatever you feel comfortable with.

Clubs to Look Into
