I try not to make resolutions in order to avoid disappointing myself, but I do hope to post here more frequently (with a good deal more original art!). Now that the dolls are more or less in order, I can focus on the clothing. I've spent the last few days ogling some lovely images from a variety of 19th century magazines (like Harper's, Demorest's, and Godey's). I am also hoping to have something to post this coming weekend (even if it is something small).
The "Happy New Year" card to the right is probably from the turn of the century (maybe even 1900 itself), judging by the dress. I love the red coat on the woman. It looks so velvety.
Along the line of allegedly not making resolutions, I will say that I do intend to submit more work to the Paper Doll Studio in the spring. I have also been invited (tentatively, yet!) to create something for the 2010 International Paper Doll Convention ~ more on that later, I hope!
