Remember waaaaay back in January, when I was only 2 days into this daily art insanity? If you can think back that far, you may recall that I submitted a piece to Lark Books for 500 Handmade Dolls jurored by Akira Blount. I got a letter in the mail today and we're in! (We being me and my doll, 13:13.)
Very exciting. I met Akira at Arrowmont, where she was teaching a really cool class: Anthropomorphic Workshop. I couldn't take it because I couldn't spell it, but I frequented the studio afterhours to spy on the works in progress and there were some truly amazing anthropomorphised things being made in there. (Anthropomophic: from the Greek: anthropo meaning man/human and morphos meaning change. - Sorry but after all the years I suffered through Greek School -- I can't help it.)
Apparently, there were over 1900 entries and we made the cut! No doubt, in large part due to the wonderful work by Walter Kirk at Windward Photography. Thanks to Akira and Lark, and to my friend, Laurie Mika, whose doll in Beyond Paper Dolls inspired me to try my hand at the human form. I can't wait to see the rest of the entries.
