Free one of your sub-personalities and link up with Paper Saturdays.

For the last couple of days I have been working like mad on a challenge. For months I have wanted to broaden my art portfolio by including more paper goodies. So when the 29face challenge came up again I set myself the challenge to work on personalised Paper dolls. I am aiming for one paper doll a day. You can follow me here.

I can't begin to tell you how much fun it is to draw people I know and some I don't know. By studying the photos I have been given to draw the doll I am learning lots about that person. The process is so interesting it is almost like some of the sub-personalities come alive in front of me. To express this visually I am also creating small animations of a few of them.


Very shortly I will include this feature of personalised Paper dolls into my Etsy shop and just for Paper Saturdays I thought it might be fun to draw one of you lovely followers. Please leave me a comment and tell me why you would like to be a paper doll. I will pick a name out of the hat by next Saturday.I also hope you have some wonderful art to share with us please read what you need to do and link up.

I think it would be great to have a paper doll made of my likeness, not only that I would love to prop you all over the house, just like that travel ad where the statue is in the sand, on the beach, on a beach stool. I have a weird sense of humor. Plus I love your art

I would like to see one using my drawing that I use for my profile pic. What you are doing with your paper dolls is a terrific idea.

This sounds exciting! I'd love to be a paper doll because I would be really intrigued as to what activities you'd have me doing! Happy Paper Saturdays! :)

I would love to have you make a paper doll based on me! Not only would it make a whimsical portrait to display in my studio, but it would remind me of the artist blogging friendship we've developed. Blessings!
