Dolls, Dolls, Dolls

I am becoming increasingly fascinated with art dolls. I think it’s because even when they aren’t supposed to be creepy, there is always something unsettling about a fake human. And when dolls are meant to be creepy, I fall straight in love. The pull to make my own dolls is getting stronger. It required two things I suck hard at: sculpture and sewing. The sculpture I’m desperate to learn, so I can deal with that. The sewing I may find a way to sneak around.

I recently picked up my first copy of Art Doll Quarterly. Nearly every page filled me with inspiration and delight. Below is a gallery of my favorites from the issue, plus a few extras I can’t resist including.
