Wearing a mask—putting on another face—embodies a fundamental human fantasy of inhabiting other bodies and experiencing other lives. In this extensively illustrated book, Thomas Morawetz explores how the creation of transformational makeup for theatre, movies, and television fulfills this fantasy of self-transformation and satisfies the human desire to become "the other." Morawetz begins by discussing the cultural role of fantasies of transformation and what these fantasies reveal about questions of personal identity. He next turns to professional makeup artists and describes their background, training, careers, and especially the techniques they use to create their art. Then, with numerous before-during-and-after photos of transformational makeups from popular and little-known shows and movies, ads, and artist's demos and portfolios, he reveals the art and imagination that go into six kinds of mask-making—representing demons, depicting aliens, inventing disguises, transforming actors into different (older, heavier, disfigured) versions of themselves, and creating historical or mythological characters.

Blue spürt, wie ihr Leben ihr jeden Tag ein bisschen mehr zu entgleiten droht. Doch dann trifft sie auf Darcy Wilson, der - als Erster und Einziger - an sie glaubt und ihr zeigt, warum es sich lohnt, ein guter Mensch zu sein und für das Leben zu kämpfen. Blue entwickelt Gefühle für Darcy, obwohl sie weiß, dass eine Liebe zwischen ihnen unmöglich ist. Denn Darcy ist ihr Lehrer ...

Chances are, you already know how to draw some expressions. But face it, your stories can only get so far with "happy," "sad" and "angry."

Ambrose Young was beautiful. The kind of beautiful that graced the covers of romance novels, and Fern Taylor would know. She'd been reading them since she was thirteen. But maybe because he was so beautiful he was never someone Fern thought she could have . . . until he wasn't beautiful anymore. "Making Faces" is the story of a small town where five young men go off to war, and only one comes back. It is the story of loss. Collective loss, individual loss, loss of beauty, loss of life, loss of identity. It is the tale of one girl's love for a broken boy, and a wounded warrior's love for an unremarkable girl. This is a story of friendship that overcomes heartache, heroism that defies the common definitions, and a modern tale of "Beauty and the Beast," where we discover that there is a little beauty and a little beast in all of us."
