A picture my daughter took of me, for publication in "J Select" (a Tokyo area entertainment & fashion magazine. I was featured in the Feb/March issue.

It remains one of my favorite pictures of myself. ^_^

I ask: only do you work the leather?? I work the papier mache and there is admirable the realism that you manage to achieve.

So this would be meri-unmasked, then? ;) You're quite a lovely young lady and although I'm not surprised that you have a daughter, I am surprised that she's old enough to wield a camera. It seems you've surprised a few of us with that. :D

Thank you (my daughter Char did an awesome job...she wants to be a photographer). We took that pic against the neighbor's pine tree. It leans over our driveway & sways alarmingly in storms, but it's served as a good background for my art on a number of occasions. ;-)

Lovely photo. It's great to see the artist with heir work. I also love how this puts your masks in perspective as far as size.
(ChibiButterfly, I agree, she doesn't look old enough to have a daughter. :) )

I should really put more pictures of the masks being worn in here...it's just hard to get good quality pics (& permission), but I ought to try.

LOL you guys are too kind; my daughter is 16 and I'm 43, but thank you so much! ;-)
