Lately I feel like a solder for rights.
I'm no longer sheeply tolerant of doll plagiarism! Ive seen too many friends and great talents vanish on account of it. You are heart rapists, identity thieves and lazy leeches.

Don't help this con artist,and arrogant plagiarizer get richer.She is taking peoples money for membership to sculpting classes and not delivering. Her work is not original in the slightest. She is using images from artists right here to make sculptures of. She sells how to books full of information others discovered and gave for free on the net.

Scuttle gets a DD

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 19, 2010, 10:49 PM
I got a DD for a peice that is special to me.Scuttle my little studio mascot.Its sweet and warms my heart:) I wondered why all the faves. He was a very underfaved, undercommented peice not being too pretty or impressive.. so, I noticed the sudden surge. Thanks ((((big hugs))))

It was especialy nice cause Ive had a highstrung couple of days since my step father has passsed on suddenly. I thought Id mention when I was 13 he gave me his old oil paints to do whatever. And when I borrowed his pocket knife to carve with and broke the tip he wasnt mad.  I dont think he ever got why I painted fantasy crap ,but he hung my Boris study on the wall anyway.

what the hell is lowbrow?

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 4, 2009, 11:59 PM
Am I lowbrow because I sculpt fantasy?... what is lowbrow?.. do I want to be in that swamp ? Is it cool cause its looking eh.. uncool.  With cheeky theives  and snobs owning the playing feild.  Maybe I chose the wrong medium cause clay is work and hell I can vector trace real good!.. you wanna buy a print for 2k?

I can already hear an answer something to the tune of be whatever you want or  labels we dont need no stinkin labels!

Buuuut my teeth hurt from the lazy Mark Ryden hybrid , bigeye,saccharine, nubile goth, throw in a random skull,antlers or tentacle... hash that seems to mean insta fame right now. Is that all thats expected of me?

Since I already make ball jointed dolls  and figures of nudee fairy tale females I guess Im already there  and its only a small thing to push that much more,but the dying of the light screams nooooo! My stuborness wants to go the other direction.

I happen to be a doll sculptor nothing to take too seriously, nothing so deep there and my eternal love is for  nudes, fantasy, surrealism and dark art always have been and will be here when the territory is  trampled and unfresh and fad whores flit off to new ground. Ill be here mulching and tilling under hopeing something will grow in the depleated soil.

  Im feeling aprehension for the clique Im about to join this year cant you tell? Will it be ok?

I thought Id come out official like and say  my sculptures are going to be in a group show here  www.Eclectix.com  th… fall.
I have to make  a few wall mounted peices and Ill be working on that so,may not be available for commissions past June,but I will continue putting things up on etsy.

Im excited about making some diffenrt peices,but I have to change directions midstride! At first I thought about shadow boxes,but no reason I cant hang a sculpture directly on a wall. Also thinking about parts for one peice. Does a dressed set of legs and a pelvis count as a doll? Cause I have saved a very old peice of mine that is a favorite and I snapped this doll in half to display her from the waist down. To me its very pretty just like that.

These sooo gotta not suck cause Jennybird Alcantara is going to have her figures in the show !:O Been luvin me some Jennybird !

Usualy I dont bother with resolutions. it seems pretty useless to me ,but I think its great now for art goals.

Ive already set my goals for this year. Last two years I decided to do more of the type of "risky" in the unsaleable sence... work that was inside my head and I have!:D So glad about it too because before I fealt Id plateaued and wasnt growing anymore.
So, this year my goals are to further use referance to bring up the level of my work and to stretch a bit to experiment with assmemblage/ mixed media and my clay.

Been overwelmed with lots to do on gasoline fumes,but had to take a moment to give thanks to ((((((^Thebuild)))))) virtual hugs for the DD on my peice "Still she has no name" also for all the  awesome comments! This sculpt means alot to me so, her being chosen for a DD is great!
I was realy surpised that she was also cited for being  unlabeled mature subject matter!  Uh ok.. I dont get that. No nudity, violence or obscene material,but this affirms that I have a miracualous "gift" of disturbing some folks without really trying! My peice Violet was also ousted from Myspace for its innocent nudity. 14yr olds mustnt see blurry fairy doll nipples it can make them go off in a phycotic rage you see. heh heh

Nothing special to commemorate except I have my new sculpt  "Lambsy" up.
I started an Etsy account where I will try to sell more affordable(under $100) small simple sculpts. My random studies,busts,unfinishes works or maybe a bead or two. Will have to see how well it goes.
Its not set up for selling yet,but Ill be sure to put links here when I have anything available.

Thanks y'all:D
Ill take this oportunity to do the traditional bulk apologetic thank you to all of you who watch,send wonderful encourageing comments and fave my work.

Im a horrible biotch for not thanking you all individualy..Here are tons of face covering sticky smooches.

Now so, this isnt just a boring post. I am making an ice throne these days. So fun! Messy and carefree working with layers of resin and glitter. Will post it very soon. So now that I know how to make ice... Ill absolutly have to make more ice theme stuff! Ive been busy you will see soon enough.

I want to make busts on ocasion of a slightly larger size than my figures .Perhaps a 4-5 inch head.

One reason I havent started is that I need some sort of classy way to stand the bust up. Id like a classic bust stand or pedastle,but I dont know where to look or how best to make such a thing with clean lines.  Any tips for that? Like a suplier, a widget that would serve as one or a way to make my own?
  • Mood: Artistic
I want to thank everyone for watches and faves and including me in features! I appreciate all of you.  Im sorry if I havent thanked personally or belated theres too much so, I pick at random.

I just finished my octonaga peice. Feel eh not quite fully satisfied,but glad shes done. I tried a new armature method, that is not ideal. Back to the drawing board. Im looking for the holy grail of armatures!

Im already working on another sculpt .I put three hours in yesterday till my back was cramping,but proud of how its looking. Boy, I need a nap just now.
  • Mood: Optimism
Im working on the first peice for the year another fantasy lady sculpt  but, this time a fantasy portrait. I hope I can get a resemblance. I am using  the lovely Odessa Sawyer of Odessa11stock as my muse.(with permission) Ill post pictures once I get something decent to look at.
  Im debating whether to go pregnant or not.  prego fairy maybe a bit done,but I was thinking of those finger sheaths and a bit of something extra to it too. my usual wierdness.
This is the hard part where you really settle on one thing not the million of ideas that want to pop in. I thought it would be really fun to focus on the blue veins under the skin of a porcelain pale complextion.  I really want to push for more movement ,more expression this year.  Away from so many vunerable ,pouty ladies.. at least I have to make one that is angry and cast iron or one that is happy as a stretch!

I also hope I can do more dressing. Gonna take a stab at it from time to time. Painted leather seemed to realy work out. No raveling and it realy works I think to paint your own cloth for a painterly sketchy look.
