Unmasking the Jeepney : A Journey into Mask Design

Our Second Project in Graphic Design Class : A Journey into Mask Design through Illustrator. I Chose to merge the Festival Masks in the Philippines with the Philippine Jeepney: the National form of Public Transportation in the Philippines and a Filipino Icon.

In Graphic Design Class we were tasked to create a mask inspired by different mask types. I chose to merge Philippine Festival Masks from the Masskara Festival in Bacolod with another Philippine Icon: The Jeepney. No two Jeepneys are alike. Being past war vehicles, they were converted into Public Transit for the Philippines. I chose to take inspiration from the Jeepney's elements and transform them into a festival Mask of its own.
