Tiny dolls

xmasdolls01

I have been working all-consumingly hard on a picture book these last few months but my local illustrator-artist’s group had pegged December for an art exchange and there was no getting out of it. I took a few days out of last week to mould, stitch and paint these little polymer clay/fabric ladies. There were late nights where I tested the limits of my eye-sight and there were moments of panic but it gave me more joy than I have felt in ages.

And of course, I had to make myself one… she’s the risqué one of the crowd.

And the gifts I got in exchange? A beautiful oil painting, a ceramic mug, a digital illustration made just for me and a floating universe.

More of this sort of stuff in 2015 I think.

    Wow. These dolls are quite stunning; you should definitely make more. They remind me of the models used for all of the Laika projects. So, so awesome!
