I just got my copy of the “Boobs Art” exhibit catalogue! My piece “Surviving” was part of the show (in print form) alongside many other works of art on the topic of the female breast.

Boobs Art opened on March 23rd and runs until September 9th, in Brussels, Belgium. (http://seedfactory.be/boobs-art/)

The show, called Boobs Art is run by the “Maison de l’Image”, a non profit organization managed by illustrators, to promote graphic Arts. The exhibition displays the best illustrators from Belgium + many artists from abroad (humor/visual poetry/graphic design). This show on “breasts” will also include historical images as well as a selection of “breast cancer awareness” images.

Where does the time go? One minute you’re excitedly digging out your bathing suit and sun-dresses, and the next moment summer is almost over! I’m sorry I haven’t been blogging more, too much time spent outside, and then when I am inside I’m furiously working on whatever has currently captured my attention. I hope everyone is enjoying the warm months and getting plenty of chances to explore the great outdoors.

On to dolls.

I present, another little Echo sister in French Resin as a part of a promotion for the Chinese Enchanted Doll book, release by my publishers TXRiver! This Oriental beauty is another variation in my ongoing limited edition ‘Echo’ series, featuring a brand new hair ornament – a set of five tiny silver hair combs! I’ve been dreaming about making a lovely comb set for my future Enchanted dolls every since I read ‘The Gift of the Magi’ in my junior-high literature class. And now this Echo Sister is the first doll to be wearing them in her luscious hair. Woo! Another dream realized!

How do you buy this doll you ask?

The doll will be sold through my Chinese publishers TXRiver, and they are having a draw. Only those that order a book directly from them (http://world.taobao.com/item/43715713846.htm?fromSite=main)  can enter the draw,  and the randomly selected participant will have the opportunity to buy. The doll is being sold for $5700 USD. The draw will occur when this edition of the book has been sold out, which I’m being told is almost upon us! (Still some left, but going fast!).

Take a look!

Hey Folks!

Long time no post! I’ve been busy working on a new tattooed doll (which will be unveiled soon) and getting the final details of the Chinese book release sorted. I have some more news on the book front: The publisher sent me this series of photos to show what to expect when you order the Chinese edition of the Enchanted Doll book. There’s a limited number of books that I have signed, and I’m told they are only a few left!

Small Update on the Chinese edition of the Enchanted Doll book. I designed a stamp in Chinese that will be used only in this edition of the book.  I wish I could show you the stamp, but it will be kept a secret until the book is released. Instead, I’ll post a picture from my recent trip to China:

The Chinese edition of the Enchanted Doll book is almost ready! There will be 999 signed books available. That may sound like a large number, but an even bigger number is 1,357,000,000 which is roughly the population of China. Another number is 21,196, which is the size of the Great Wall of China in kilometres. Numbers are fun.

I’m excited to announce that the Enchanted Doll book will be released as a Chinese edition. It was a long back-and-forth process to get it through multiple levels of censorship, but it is finally going to print.

The book is being published by TX River, and will be available for purchase directly through them. The book contains the same content as the previous edition, along with new pages featuring some of my most recent dolls.

Hello my Darlings!

The release and sale of the artist edition of my new book have come and gone last week. I didn’t expect it to sell out this fast, but it was all over in just 4 days! That’s three and a half weeks faster than my last edition of 500. You guys are really wonderful for supporting my work like this. Thank you! Thank you.

I’m expecting the shipment to arrive at Vancouver Port sometime next week and we will begin mailing them out to you immediately. I’ve got to rest up my writing hand for a 24 hour marathon of signing and numbering all your copies. I’m really looking forward to it. I keep imagining you opening your copies all around the world, in all the time zones and delving into the pages of my enchanted world. I am so thrilled to be able to share it with you!

Thank you again, for helping me create that world!
