Tra la la la laa, la la la la

A Christmas card for the in-laws

Tis the season to be jolly

So here are the Russian dolls I created for my daughter for her first Christmas. I won't be showing her how to open them for a few years though - That small one could be dangerous in a little one's mouth/throat. POSCA with plastikote varnish.

Codename: Babushka

The London Graphic Centre does three sizes of Russian dolls in plain wood. I'd spotted these on a previous visit and planned to create some for my daughter. After seeing the previews for the Codename: Babushka show mentioned previously, I purchased the mid-size set.

Here, then, are WIP shots of my 5 dolls...

Out and about

Last Thursday I popped into KidrobotLDN to see the Codename: Babushka exhibition. Had a nice chat with @flattiestoys, who pointed me in the direction of their next project 'Just in time'. It's a 'Back to the future' based showcase, and I have a hankering to have a go at Doc Brown. Watch this space.

A completed rictus. Of course I say that, but I usually spot something else that needs touching up in the 'finished' photos.

Rictus - further WIP

Rictus is coming along nicely. Here you see further work on his hair, flower, shoes and further coats evening out his flesh and face paint.

Rictus WIP

Here's some early work in progress for Rictus. I used a pink Munny, all colours by POSCA. The hat is from a Cornetto!
