Working on some altered dolls & stuff

All the images have textures by FlyPaper Textures and Kim Klassen.
Two altered dolls, one for the Traveling Artist's Guild.  More details on construction will be posted on the Traveling Artist's Guild blog.


My character (Shiao Mei Mei) is created from an old Chinese doll.  This is her traveling trunk, a wonderful old leather box from my friend Kiki

Every good traveler needs a map so here's Shiao Mei Mei's map.

Here's the cover of her paper bag journal.

And one of the pamphlet books inside the paper bag journal.

Because she is a vintage doll, she's already had some adventures in her life so the inside of her trunk has some little bits of treasure from these earlier adventures.

Me too! Who played with her before she came to live in Nova Scotia?

how fabulous?! I get a bit fuzzy on what is digital and what is 3D - your work is so amazing... are the top pieces digital? well, I love them no matter!

Sorry to be visually confusing, or maybe not, lol! But they are all photos with textual layers added so that the 3D art becomes 2D art on the blog.

Lani...the fair will be fun and since you are doing one perhaps I can bring myself to do one! Aren't the brave girl posts just right on? Love your traveling guild stuff too!
