Making Monsters

24 Oct

I took a class at Art & Soul in Portland called Monster Lab, by Andrew Dyrdahl. There were only 2 of us in the class, so we got great undivided attention and instruction. The class was fun and very creative. I ended up finishing one doll in class and starting a second one (for my sister who couldn’t attend :() They turned out super cute (I know they are monsters and supposed to be scary, but they are not!) and now I am in love with them.

This is the first doll I made for me. Her name is Miss Trixie Darling. The photo isn’t very good I’m afraid, but hopefully you get the idea of her.

Here is the Misfit doll I made for my sister Teresa. She turned out super cute and I can’t wait to find out what my sister decides to name her.

Yesterday I started creating some more little monster dolls. It is a great way to use up scraps and mismatched buttons and bits of trim, etc. They are kind of addictive. I started putting some dolls together and planning them and got so excited about all the ideas in my head for these funky misfit dolls. I just wanted to keep going. How many can I make?

Then comes the fun part of naming them. They each have their own personality and deserve their own little misfit names. I will post more photos as I finish these little misfit cuties up. Hmmm….what do you think about the name Misfit Cuties for these dolls?
