Re: "Trash" Dolls! Shawn DuBois Art

This whole series of dolls is enjoyable. The phrases here make them more commercial than some of the others you've shown and that I've seen in your shop. Well done.

I love the feel of these! I, too, love to reuse old things for art. You do a wonderful job with found objects!

Re: "Trash" Dolls! Shawn DuBois Art

These are really imaginative, so colorful and intriguing. Few weeks ago I had idea to make a polymer clay/mixed media figurine with a note attached "3D!As seen on tv!". I will give it a try.
