Well I have some exciting news
Thanks to everyone who voted, I've been nominated for the RAWards
in the Accessories category for my masks! This means that I will be competing against two other artists to become the Accessories artist representing Hartford, and then I go onto the final round to compete against the other semi-finalists in other cities. Yipes!
There's going to be a really exciting show in Hartford, showcasing the work of the nominees. They will also be creating posters for each artist, featuring our information and a photo of our work. This is where I'm running into a problem - I really don't want to just use one of my regular, plan-background mask photos (like the ones at the very bottom of this journal). I want to use a photo of a mask being worn - something really awesome that really shows the mask and how great it looks worn!
I have some photos on hand that some of you have sent, and I am immensely thankful! Unfortunately I never made a specific folder for them, so they're scattered throughout my hard drive and I can't find all of them. My request is as follows:
Anyone who has a mask of mine and hasn't sent a photo, would you consider taking a picture of it being worn? I'm not necessarily looking for professional-grade photographs (though if you provided some I would be overjoyed!), but something more than just a plain, frontal shot against a wall. I'd love to see you get creative with the photo! However, the only thing I request is that the mask is the main focus (no full-body shots), and that the lighting is good.
Anyone who has a mask of mine and HAS sent a photo in the past, could you resend it, hopefully high resolution? The photos I was able to find are mostly tiny photos that I can't use for the poster. These photos don't have to be enormous, since they'll be used for a web poster, but not tiny either.
And I need these photos by this Sunday
. I feel awful for the complete lack of notice, but I just found out today that I need a suitable photo for this poster!
Thank you all so much!
