Enchanted Doll Cover Feature!
Well, ladies and gentleman, I am beyond thrilled to announce that The Enchanted Doll has finally got its first magazine cover feature!
My latest doll Cixi will grace the cover of ÐšÑƒÐºÐ¾Ð»ÑŒÐ½Ñ‹Ð¹ ÐœÐ°ÑÑ‚ÐµÑ€ Magazine (Doll Artist Magazine)Â in Russia. I believe the issue has just gone to print and will be out in the media in several days. The cover feature will be followed by a big story on Enchanted Doll in the next issue of Doll Artist.
I am very excited as I’ve been waiting for this to happen ever since the official Enchanted Doll website launched in spring 2006. This is big milestone for me. I wish i had time to celebrate, but unfortunately I’m too busy to leave my desk. If I took time to celebrate every accomplishment, I would accomplish a lot less.
Date of the show is getting closer and i just know i’ll be working until the moment i get on the plane. And then some. That’s always the case with me for some reason. I just don’t seem to know when to stop and cram another project in even though it’s not always best thing to do. Everything is always rush rush rush. I’m simultaneously surprised that so much gets done on a such rapid schedule and disappointed that it’s still not enough.
Anyway, Here is a link to a Russian cite Dollbooks.ru where one of the editors of the magazine is discussing and showing the process of choosing the best image and designing the layout for the cover with Enchanted Doll.
They go through several versions of the layout and explain the basis for their creative decisions.
I don’t know why they asked me for those particular photographs of those particular dolls. I think that there are others that would have worked just as well or even better, but hey, I’m not a designer. The decision was not mine.
I like the final result a lot. I look forward to receiving my copy, holding it in my hands and admiring my handiwork.
