dolly stockings – pen & ink in sketchbook
This year in April I became infected by the ABJD-Virus. No, it’s nothing serious, don’t worry, it’s just expensive. Horribly expensive. ABJD is an abbreviation for Asian ball-jointed dolls. They are really beautiful, such cuties ^^! If you haven’t heard of them before and want to check out some examples, just follow the following links to marvel at their beauty. And their prices.
Now since the dolls themselves are that outrageous expensive (or do you consider up to $ 700 for one doll as reasonably priced?!?), I just had to economize somewhere and so I started sewing at least the outfits for them myself. Phew, sewing turned out to be quite time consuming, so I didn’t find much time for painting the last weeks. However, now that I’m broke (yes, I ordered a doll), I have more time for drawing and painting again.
