There are two new doll galleries on the site, Aphrodite (the tattooed doll from the previous post) and Noire (seen above).

Noire was inspired by the film noir genre, after seeing the movie Chinatown.  I’ve been wanting to make something from the 1920’s era for a while, and Chinatown re-inspired me if you will.

Noire is in the Nude section, while Aphrodite can be found in the Costumed section.

It’s been a long time since my last post. Here is the scoop on what I’ve been up to between now and then.

The show opeing was a great experience, but a very intense one too. I got to meet some of you guys, which was awesome, but I came home exhauseted and drained of creative juices. I had planned to take it easy after the show opened and not do any allnighters, tight deadlines or extreme multi-tasking for a while. May and June were supposed to be a chilled out months in celebration of a major carreer milestone. They are not turning out to be very relaxing so far because I was invited to take part in three shows, in Bolzano Italy, St. Petersburg Russia, and Berlin Germany.  I have been working to create new pieces for these shows, all while doing orders for nude dolls.  Sure all the work can be stressful at times, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t enjoying every twist and turn along the way.

The doll shown in the photo above is a new tattooed doll that will be on display at the KunStart Art Fair in Bolzano Italy, from 21-24 of May.

The show in St. Petersburg show takes place June 11-14.

Also, there is a little video of me setting up The Bride for the Milwaukee show.  I was working right up until the last minute fixing some final details, and Chad caught me doing some “Clutch Sewing” with my limited supply of thread.  Expect some more “behind the scenes” videos in the future.

I’ve finished a new tattooed doll, titled: “The Vessel”.

She is really pretty and has the longest, most beautiful mohair of any of my dolls i’ve ever made. It almost reaches her feet. Unfortunately I don’t have this length available for orders yet, as it is very rare and i was only able to get a little bit, which i’m keeping for my one of a kind projects.

This doll is also featuring a different style facial and body blushing. I decided to avoid using black in her face up and replace her skin tone blushing red with a dark brown, the colour I usually use for eyebrows and lighter eye tones. Needless to say i was a little bit nervous about how it would turn out. However i liked the results. Her face looks very light and fresh and her body tone is closer to the actual human skin tone.

I don’t prefer it over the red though, probably because i was never after ultra realism in my dolls, but rather subtle surrealism mixed with realism. A stylized look over a realistic.

I’ve started to sculpt new doll faces to add to my nude collection. I’m a little bit bored of the others and crave for fresh beauty.
