I found a great site yesterday, myartself.com. It is a blog set up by Stacey Apeitos and Arrigo Dorissa that poses a challenge to creat 100 art dolls by the end of 2008. While the deadline is it is not the thrust of meeting the deadline that drives the challenge. In their words, "The challenge is to learn about themselves and to set intentions for their lives, using art-doll-making as a tool." Way Cool! Read a press article about it here: http://www.myartself.com/stacey/pdf/100_artdollschallenge.pdf
Have a look and sign up! Don't make dolls? Go ahead and make 100 of something else. Enjoy!
This doll is Birdie, one of my first few dolls. She has polymer clay face with a stick body and lots of feathers.
