And Today in my Sketchbook…

So, one of the perks of where I work is that I can borrow an SLR camera sometimes. Not that I have any idea how to use an SLR camera, but I am trying to experiment with decent blog photos, so I borrowed one last weekend and decided to photograph my sketchbook.

All things considered, I think the photos came out fairly well. So, here’s a little peek at what is currently in the sketchbook. I would say these were “coming up soon”, but let us all be realistic. I take forever to get things from “idea” to actually paper doll. It is probably best that I promise nothing.


The Poppets are getting some historical outfits here with a dress and coat from the 1940s and a swimming outfit and sailor suit from the 1890s. I really like historical children’s clothing.

Which of these paper doll sets are you most looking forward too?

  1. These are all way cool, but the mermaid tails are really turning me on! I want to print 2, color one, then give them to my niece!

  2. When you do mythical creatures, could you maybe do a selkie? I don’t see them very much, but they’re probably my favorite.
