Shadow & Light 2

I love contrast of heavy structured pieces with light draped pieces. So, I wanted to sort of play with that and draw nifty harness looking things. See… I was trying to justify my wacky-ness with some sort of artistic statement, but I don’t really take myself that seriously.

On a semi-unrelated note, I’ve become rather obsessed with Blythe dolls lately. At first, I thought they were creepy- all big eyes and weird mouths, but lately I’ve come to actually think they are sort of cute. Mostly I like their little tiny clothing. Not surprising to anyone who knows me, I’ve always been more of a doll clothing, then a doll sort of person. The same is true for paper dolls. As a child, I was just as happy to have just one paper doll and lots of dresses (if not more happy) then to have a lot of dolls.

I’d like to do some sort of Blythe paper doll, but I’m still working on keeping up with what I’ve committed too and I don’t think I’m ready for that quite yet. If I do decide, it might not be serial which brings back the “What to do with non-serial” paper dolls problem.

On an utterly non-related note, I am now going to walk away from my laptop and curl up on my couch with fresh sweet corn and Harry Potter movies. Summer classes are over and life is good.

  2. Thank you, Boots. I’m glad you’re back. 🙂 And I’m pleased you’re enjoying the site. I have been unsure if anyone likes the sketchbook posts, but I enjoy them so I think I’ll keep doing them. 🙂

  3. I like the sketch book posts very much, they give a neat look into how you progress though your thought processes. I like all of your work. However my printer messes up nearly every darkly shadowed dolls; would you try a tiny bit more subtle shading. Again I really like all your dolls.

  4. Hello I have a group on facebook and we do pictures for my group we don’t edit the pictures we just add a name so no one else can edit the picture in any way I love your pictures of the big eyes dolls and wanted to know if I myself can use some of your pictures for my group
