A feature snagged my attention - I really shouldn't be online, I have a test tomorrow. I'd like to say thanks to everyone who has favorited, commented, watched and featured me - I am tremendously grateful for all the attention my work has received. I get very excited over feedback and it means a lot to me. To everyone who has left me anything in the past few weeks - I'm about to hit finals, and will return as of mid-May. If you really want to contact me in the short term, try me at my website
- that contact form leads straight to my inbox, which I cannot afford but to check daily. Otherwise, I'll see you in two weeks or so, and I'll be as long-winded and excitable as ever.
Thank you very much!Soon to come:

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
