Merry Lolita Christmas!

A fascination with Lolita fashion led to a Lolita-themed Christmas paper doll set. After researching the various Lolita styles, I made interpretations using holiday visual elements and colors. The final art was created in Adobe Photoshop.

Alien Doll-inspired Paper Doll

This paper doll was inspired by a Novi Star doll I have. I drew costumes for her based on the Novi Star characters that were part of the line, now discontinued.

Talaxian Paper Doll Greeting

Definitely Star Trek-inspired, my Trexia is a Talaxian girl created as a New Year’s greeting for 2016. The format I used had the doll attached inside a folded card, with a slit cut to allow her outfits to insert under her chin. Trexia has 4 costume changes.
2015_talaxian_pdTrexia is delighted to add a Seven of Nine doll to her doll collection. Most fashionable  former Borg ever!

2015_talaxian_7of9Like many Talaxians, Trexia shares her  hospitality. She’s made some yummy desserts  from Martian ice, flavored with Bajoran kava  juice, Betazoid uttaberry, Talaxian traggle nectar, and icoberry juice.

2014 Christmas Card

My Christmas card for 2014 required a good deal of handwork, on my part. The girl figure was printed on the lowest layer of the card, while her costume changes were assembled in layers such that, each folded over the doll and covered all but her head.

The Spray Gun is the Star.

I was the art director on this shoot for the cover of a brochure introducing a new line of Matco spray guns. This was fairly early in the transition from film to digital, so this image was generated from 5 different shots, composited in layers in Adobe Photoshop.
