A while back, the delightful Ellen Eades arranged for artist Beverly Toyu to create a life mask of me. This thing was done, and we arranged for some copies to be made. A while back, Lisa Costello went out to Beverly’s studio in the Oregon wine country to pick them up, as documented here: [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ].

Finally, we were able to pull the masks out and look at them carefully.

These are pretty awesome. I love them. Hopefully their recipients will too. My special thanks to Ellen for both thinking of this in the first place, and then making it possible.

Those are cool and surreal. I like the interesting shadows in the beard texture.

You should make another LJ icon... :)
