elvis, the south american fruit-bat

This was a mask I made for the 3rd Annual Wildlife Mask Competition back in 2001, which benefitted both the World Wildlife Fund and the World Trade Center Disaster Relief Fund.

The total dollars raised that year was over $8700—and Elvis was auctioned off at $650. Someone figured out that my entry raised 13% of the money from that auction for the charities. Hooray for art making the world a better place.
