Joy 2.0

I initially customized Joy this past winter, but when the grey winter skies turned to sun, I discovered flaws that had been hidden in the dim light and removed her from my shop.  I have completely redone her carving and makeup since then, and she is now a total stunner in any kind of light you can throw at her!  She’s now back in my Etsy shop and looking forward to traveling!

Mini Gene the Golfer

Mini Gene is my 42nd custom, created as a commission for a friend to be a mini-version of her dad, who loves to golf. You can check out the rest of his adventures on the links in his Flickr album.

Airbrush Guide Part 1

If you are looking for a definitive guide to learning to use an airbrush, you have definitely come to the wrong place!
I’m writing this from the perspective of a doll artist who has wanted to incorporate airbrushing into my work for some time, but was too intimidated by the equipment and the process to even try.  A week ago, I decided to overcome my nervousness and dive in, and I am so glad I did! Even after just a few days practice I am feeling so much more at ease, and confident that I will be doing amazing things with this tool given time.

Cherie’s Debut

Cherie had a fabulous time performing at the Erotic Poetry and Music Festival last weekend! She says she’s not getting out of bed for at least another week though… (ok, I’m not quite ready to part with her yet….) Meanwhile, you can get a big glossy 12×18 poster of her in this sultry pose from my Etsy shop!  You can also check out the rest of her photo shoot  in her Flickr album.
