You may not know this, but I’m a little bit of a Macklemore & Ryan Lewis fan. Me… and all their angsty teen followers fall into Macklemore’s coined twitter term #sharkfacegang. Before hearing their music (being too busy with Torynova Monster Masks at the time), I had conveniently created the Shark Attack mask, which I now sell in my etsy shop. So when their song, Thrift Shop became an online sensation, I got familiar with the duo and their entourage. Needless to say, the next obvious step was to create this…
Shark Face Mask
Inspired by Macklemore’s #SharkFaceGang
In a perfect world, I would be able to show this awesome mask to Macklemore and get it selling in his merch shop so all the #sharkfacegang fans can wear Shark Face to represent their favorite Seattle rapper. Till that happens, I will be rollin’ out these masks into the Etsy shop, so keep your eyes peeled in the coming weeks! And be sure to get your hands on a copy of The Heist.
! UPDATE ! | Shark Face Mask is now for sale!

Post-musical-epiphany [very recently] my taste horizons have broadened. Among my new favorite artists is the charming Alessi’s Ark, a folk musician from the UK whose sweet voice would make the devil do good. Literally today, I discovered that she has an album cover art contest going on for the US release of Notes from the Treehouse. I wouldn’t ordinarily enter something like this on spur of the moment, but she’s so magnificent that even if for whatever reason my design doesn’t get picked, I am ok with having made a piece inspired by her delicate melodies.
I use the computer so much that sometimes I forget what it feels like to really draw. So for that experience alone, I am grateful. Now, go tell her how amazing I am! *wink* *wink*
