Strange Artifact from Tokyo

Bassist/composer Yuki Tsuda of the Japanese band and steampunk unit Strange Artifact recently performed in Tokyo wearing my Ragnarök gas mask. From the report I received the mask was a big hit!

You can read about the band and see more pics on their Facebook page.

You too can own one of these fabulous steampunk gas masks, which I'm selling on Etsy.

Another commissioned leather and resin mask. I decided a couple of months ago that I really should learn to take good photographs of my work, and to that end I bought a Canon eos T2i, some good lighting equipment and Adobe Photoshop. I have been studying all three since then, and here, ladies and gentlemen, is my first Photoshopped image of my steampunk leatherwork.

I've titled it Eviction, and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. Models are my wife and myself. Background is the entry to Empire Mine State Park in Grass Valley, California. The two models and the background were all photographed separately and assembled in Photoshop. What a great program!
