Korky The Corgi...Mask by merimask Korky The Corgi...Mask by merimask
It's not all glamor & showbiz...sometimes I do masks of friends' pets.

This is Korky. The real Korky can be seen here: [link] posing with his mask. He's not too sure about it...

Contact me at my website if you're interested in having your pet immortalized as a handmade leather mask! [link]

Not a bad idea, like the fine texture work you did with the fur!

Thanks! It really shows up better on a dog that's not black, but still...

Very detailed and very accurate!

Although, the idea of having the leather (the skin of a cow) mimicking the face of another animal (in this case a dog) brings up mixed feelings. When its fantasy creatures it's one thing, but I'm trying to wrap my head around this idea. It's almost like stuffing animals. Their likeness will be around far longer than the actual animal. And I mean no disrespect by these comments either. Your work is incredible.

Thank you. ^_^

True...once I was commissioned to make a cow mask & the irony was not lost on me.
