This is an ongoing series of mask/face schematics and cultural mashups from my biracial childhood. Masks are universal in human history, and I wanted to combine them in a very diagrammatic way, something similar to the instruction manuals for model toy robots that I studied as a youth. 

 

All this juxtaposition allows for interplay between hard/soft and modern/traditional. And you know how I love that.
