Little Thing Magazine

I was featured in the May issue (#06) of the Little Thing Magazine from Hong Kong.  I finally got my copy in the mail today and I’m so happy.  The magazine looks really interesting and covers a wide spectrum of art (from fashion photography to tiny crochet work), I just wish I could read it.

I always get excited when my dolls are featured in a magazine, especially when it’s in a different part of the world.  My goal is to be featured in a magazine from each continent, I wonder if anyone publishes a doll magazine in Antarctica…

You can see scans of the pages here, and more published work here.

    It’s always interesting to see what dolls each part of the world favors, what the magazine thinks would be of interest to the people of that particular country. Tells you a little about who they are or who they would like to be!

    quick translation of the introduction on the second page here ^^ pardon my english ><

    “Enchanted Doll” could be directly translated to “(doll that is enchanted)”, thats right, at first glance you’d be captivated by it. Sparkling, large eyes, beautifully repetitive patters, and detailed costumes have combined to form this doll. Rather than calling it a doll, its is more like a work of art. A few more glances would cause one’s mind to wonder off: perhaps such beautiful dolls were created by pixies/ fairies? Would they secretly start moving when there is nobody around?

    Modern plastic (dolls) aside, even when compared to Japan / Korea’s BJD, (enchanted dolls) seem to have more mysterious souls. Today’s BJD dolls are created from resin materials, attempting to recreate the ceramic dolls of european aristocrats. However, Marina has not chosen this more convenient method, but rather return to traditional ceramic techniques to create her dream doll. Grey rims around the Enchanted doll’s joints were to prevent the ceramics from being damaged from friction.

    Wow, thank you Xinyi!

    That was wonderful of you to do that. I appreciate the effort.

    Sincerely,

    Marina

    Actually I bought my first bjd from Korea last month and was surprized to find the resin quite beautiful but whether it will stay that way or be durable I really don’t know. I have yet to have a porcelain bjd so I can’t compare.

    Marina, I believe Manu was trying to ask you if your work has been featured in a French magazine, and if so, which one, because she wanted to buy one.

  10. Marina says:

    Ah, I see. Thank you, Kimmi.
    A list of publications featuring my work and their country of origin can be found in my CV, inside the Press section.
