Bone, Bug, and Spider Masks

Photographs are still “in bounds” right? Thought these were worth posting as the lighting and the figures are interesting (to me at least). I collect masquerade masks and these three I picked up in New Orleans. They are all hand made and one of kind by different artists. Basically what I do is choose a subject and photograph them and only them in the mask and then put it back in my collection. Weird, but otherwise they just sit on the wall.










Also, in hot sexy news. I’ll be instructing at Gnomon for the Summer Semester. I’ve instructed at workshops, but this sucker is going to be a 10 week immersive course. Pretty excited about it.

    Thanks peeps! I’m looking forward to this whole teaching thing. Never had a chance to do something like this during my normal schedule, but my “summer vacation” is all about. Then back to studio work in the fall to feed my belly.
