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.
So, some work I entered in the Addys got noticed.
3 new Addy Awards came home with me from our local Addy event. The illustration series I created for my Talaxian paper doll received a Gold Addy and a Judges Choice Award.
My design for the invitation to the opening of an exhibition of Osmo Visuri’s water color paintings received a Silver Addy.
The theme for our local ad club’s Addy Awards show was Wild West Steampunk. I created these pantins, which were included in the centerpieces on the tables. It was great fun watching the attendees play with the pantins, take selfies with the pantins, and ultimately, take the pantins home!
The work began as pencil sketches on paper, then inked on Grafix Dura-Lar film. The inked work was then scanned, and colored in Adobe Photoshop.
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.
Trexia is delighted to add a Seven of Nine doll to her doll collection. Most fashionable former Borg ever!
The artwork was created with ink and color pencils on frosted Dura-lar, then scanned and finished in Adobe Photoshop.
This set is based on the wardrobe of my friend, Harold. He travels almost exclusively by motorcycle and wears leathers every day. The ensembles I have rendered for this paper doll set are but a fraction of what he owns. He is notable for always coordinating his boots with his riding attire and for sewing many of the items himself.
