When I asked them to use their facial expressions for creating this image,
they happily agreed to supply his fluffy military hat, her beautiful blonde hair, his latin mustache, his big ears and potato nose and his remarkable eyes and scream. Many others would join the group, but choosing some of them was enough to represent the “mask of fear” that often today’s
politicians are happy to show.
