Enchanted Doll on Doll Reader cover!
Yey, here is the cover of the April issue of Doll Reader Magazine. Isn’t she pretty? There is also a spread on developing my resin line in the magazine.
That’s so awesome that the very first resin doll i make also ends up on a magazine cover! I usually spend so much time painstakingly setting up every single shot and framing and composing, but this photo was taken so spontaneously and quickly that I probably spent a total of 2.5 minutes on it. And it turned out beautifully and even made a cover. I realize that there must be some sort of choosing criteria or politics that determine what makes the cover and what doesn’t, but it still reminds me that sometimes the best thing to do is just relax and let creative flow take its course instead of forcefully and agonizingly pulling ‘brilliant’ ideas out of your brain like wisdom teeth, in search for that perfect solution. Sometimes the perfect solution is the first thing that comes to your mind.
Which, in turn reminds me that I should probably go with my first instinct on the Cosmos Exploratum project. I feel like I’ve been going in circles with that one.
I’m slowly working on more resin prototypes and will be posting new updates soon. Right now I’m splitting my time between creating a new body of work for my upcoming solo show in Berlin and organizing the resin line production. I’ll keep you posted on the progress.
Anyway. Pick up a copy of the April issueÂ of Doll Reader so that you have something I can sign next time we meet. I’ll wear my big sunglasses, and Chad will wear a dark suit and an ear piece. Also sunglasses.
