I just wanted to let everyone know that I will not be attending IDEX this year, this will be the first time I've missed the show since I started going 4 years ago.
It would seem as though the month of January has it in for me, I cant think of anything else bad that could happen aside from (In no particular order) meteor strike, rabid monkey attack or death.
So to everyone I look forward to seeing every year at IDEX, I'm sorry I'm not going to be able to attend, hopefully I'll be at the show next year.
Now, On a Happy Note,..
The studio has come along quite a bit since I last mentioned it in my journal.
That photo was taken back at the end of October, unfortunately because of the unusually cold winter we've had there has been no work done since then, but once the world starts to thaw I'll be putting in my windows and doors and finishing the outside and the electricity, hopefully once summer arrives it will at least be functional although not completely finished inside, I'm funding the entire construction with the money I make on my doll sales and casting work, (no bank loans, no credit cards) so the building pace is steady but slow, but I can at least see the finish line now
Once its completely finisehd I plan on teaching doll making and casting/moldmaking workshops here, both beginnaer and advanced. Also, my studio will be open to anyone who has purchaed my work in the past to drop by and see the actual process of how I went about creating their doll
Ive finally finished the Logan expression plates,
It might not seem like much but Ive been working on these guys FOREVER! I started over from scratch several times while sculpting them and did about a dozen revisions on these before I was finally happy with them.
Heres a link showing them in "action" haha
For everyone who hasn't seen it yet there was a DA article on BJD artists, you can take a look at it here [link]
I was shocked upon seeing the article at how much a ramble on about making dolls, seriously my answers are ridiculously huge, I'm almost embarrassed but at the same time i did answer the questions honestly and with as much thought as I could.
So anyone interested in reading It, click the link above and take a look.
And on a sad but happy note Logan is nearly sold out, there are only 2 of him left,..yes there are only 2 of him in the known universe that are for sale and once they are gone I WILL NOT be making any more Logans, I will be making his additional expression faceplates up until the first of June.
Logan was one of my favorite sculpts and it will be sad to see him go but at the same time it will be nice to move on to new character sculpts.
Until my next post, I hope everyone is well!
