The mask that burns like a violin. The mask that sings only dead languages, that loves the destruction of being put on. The mask that sighs like a woman even though a woman wears it. The mask beaded with freshwater pearls, with salt. The plumed mask, the mask with a sutured mouth, a moonface, with a healed gash that means: harvest. A glower that hides: wanting. A grotesque pucker to suggest a heart whose valves won’t close. Here is a beaked mask, a braided mask, here is a mask without eyes. A mask that looks like a mask but isn’t. Please don’t try to unribbon it. The mask that snows coins and the mask full of doves. Lace masks to net escaping thoughts. Pass me that rouged mask, the one made of sheet music. Or the jackal mask, the hidebound mask, the mask that renders the wearer identical with night. Mask of a songstress that amplifies voices, the lovers’ masks that conceal them.
For once i want to show you all what i do at my job. You probably won’t understand what it says, but it’s about Carnival in my town.
I work as illustrator and designer on Neoprint (Riveira). I barely have time to make the designs people order (1 hour or less), but this time i managed to pull out something i really really feel proud of! For once i had almost total freedom and a good ammount of time (Between 2 and 4 hours each)! Everything is done with vectors, so it can be rescalled at any size!
I even managed to put @cholie-nsfw and @cruxia ‘s OCs Heather and Cruxia on the last one (and Nun, my own OC).
I really loved it. I hope you find it cute, maybe give some opinions. And if you like it enough, maybe ask for something?
