Welcome to Story doll™.

Everything is still a work in progress but I’m happy to finally start sharing more of what I’ve been working on since last year.

I wrote in my blog about my decision to stop making cloth creatures due to hand pain issues and proceeded to switch to clay.

I’ve posted WIP photos of my progress…
My first poly-clay doll
More WIPs
More characters…
The Faith Box

I’ve been holding off on sharing the full story about it all because I’ve been doing research on the right clay paint, web design, and learning things I need to learn. After spending months on all that, I realized that I will never be done with research and learning new things so I might as get started with unveiling my mystery project…

Here’s the working mastheads I’ve made so far…

Everything is a work in progress at this point. Here’s hoping I’ll be finished with the major CI work by the first day of the new year, and so it is!

What a break that was. Exhilirating! Michael De Meng is right when he wrote, “You don’t have to make art to be making art.”

Next, my drawing/ sculpting table! Ha-haaaa!

Magiting's Armor
Magiting is the Filipino word for valor. Its a griffin commissioned by Lore Knutson. It is also the last cloth creature that I am making.

Here he is ready for a test flight with my little Egg as the pilot.

Now that its finished, I’m spending the next weeks doing face up of some resin doll parts and dolls to rest my aching wrists. Then its on to paper clay and polyclay doll and creature projects. Yay!

CTS and tendonitis is not fun but switching to clay is so much fun so its all good.

Meanwhile, off to bed I go.

Happy weekend, everyone!
