Telling a Story through Fantasy Paper Dolls
Images tell a thousand words as the old saying goes. I like the idea of paper dolls - images created on paper - telling a story, but even better, a story that can be enacted. With this is in mind I have been dabbling in some new paper doll designs featuring a girl and her pet, but with a twist. The girl is a fantasy figure with shape and texture inspired by fabulous and unreal places, other worlds and scapes of dreams. Their pets are unique mash-ups.
The first pair of figures I have created are around a story of a girl who wants to own a dog. Except the do is a fish dog. I wonder what her mum will say to this pet.
