Here is a fairly old paper doll from the exciting depths of my boxes of drawings. Flora actually dates from 2006 or so. I remember drawing her in college while I was living in an apartment with three other people and changing majors. It was a rather hectic time in my life. The original paper doll has a fairly complicated black background. I wanted to keep that appearance when I reformatted the paper doll for the blog, but I fear the background might overwhelm her. I think you can see hints of Marisole in her design, though she far predates any Marisole. Like Dot, she’s just black and white without any grey or color.
I’ve been checking out A Paper Closet for a while and I haven’t actually mentioned it here, because I am a space cadet. (Actually, I have been told that I am probably high ranked in the space case navy. Perhaps, nearly a captain.) Never the less, I am linking A Paper Closet now, because I do think it’s a really wonderful blog and I should have done it soon. Better late than never, right? Among the things I love are the fact that she posts the paper doll’s clothing on the actual paper doll, so you can see how it would look. Her paper dolls have the most amazing faces- simple, but really… pure, somehow? I’m not much of an art person, really, so I don’t know how to describe what I’m talking about, but they have a really great simplicity that I love.
