Fake Leather Fables by CanisAlbus Fake Leather Fables by CanisAlbus
Today I remembered those animal themed card stock masks we used to make at library’s children’s centre at the age of… 9, 10 maybe? Thus I whipped up this. Now I’m a jackal.
Too bad I can only wear it for short times continuously. Without glasses, a headache strikes rather quickly.


Card stock, Faber-Castell colored pencils and a piece of elastic band.

This has been sitting in my inbox since you submitted it because I really love looking at it as I'm going through my messages. All of your work is so fantastic, and I'm not sure why I adore this piece in particular more than the rest, but I do.

Your work always has such wonderfully composed design elements, and this mask is no different. I love the shapes, colors, and textures - that vivid blue and orange combo is just so striking! This really is so beautiful, and it's amazing to me how very 3D looks with only a bit of bending/folding - a lot of paper masks can look so flat but certainly not this! I can see a mask like this being used in a film, play, or opera. 

Thank you for sharing your beautiful artwork with us! I love seeing your work in my inbox. <3

It's card stock, colored with Faber-Castell colored pencils and tied with a piece of elastic band.

Väittäisin että tässäpä uusi loistava hittimyyntituote tilaustöitä ajatellen. Siun kädenjälki on niin dynaamista että sopii tällaiseen maskihommaan hyvin. c:

Have you considered sacrificing an old pair of glasses and mounting the lenses inside the eye holes? My friend Allison did that with a Venetian carnival mask she bought, and it works great!
