A New Poe....






Here is what I worked on last night. It's not often that I am thrilled by my own work but this has got to be one of my favorites. He's made of painted, stuffed muslin on a little peg and spool. I just love how he turned out and I can't wait to put him in his vintage cigar box display.


I still haven't stopped laughing at my first Poe attempt. He looks like Borat! I'm keeping him on display in my studio as a reminder for me to NOT attempt this again. I do much better painting than modeling in clay, heehee!


Well, I'm off to work on some new doll designs....little devils and cats! Oh, and remember this sketch? Well here she is without her arms and legs. I promised her she'd be free to roam the house tonight with all of her new limbs....that's why she's smiling:)



Have a great day!

Love the Poe doll. I love the mix of 2D and 3D. You should make a literary series. I also like the idea of the cigar box display. Nice work!
