Has it really been that long? Sometimes I think back to the days where I was posting regularly here and I think "Oh, that was just a month or two ago." Only, it's been nearly three years based on the date of the last post!
You may be wondering why I went on such a long (and unexplained) hiatus. I didn't plan it--- I just didn't draw for an extended time, life was busy, my desk got more and more crowded with unfinished projects, the corner of the basement with my arts and crafts gear started seeing more and more spiders (a sure way to dry up my creativity)... all sorts of excuses. But one day I received an e-mail from a gal who had found A Paper Closet. I remembered all the hours of brainstorming and sketching--- and I realized how much I missed it. So I pulled out my binder of dolls and started sketching again. And I kept sketching. And I decided that I wanted to share the dresses again.
So, if you can forgive my long absence, I would like to start bringing my dolls and dresses to the internet for your perusal and enjoyment once again. I can't promise I will never hit a dry spell of creativity again--- but I hope in the future if it happens, I will let you know (and have a large buffer of pre-drawn outfits to automatically post until I have fresh material again... that is one goal).
What to Expect for the Reboot
I want to do things a little differently than I have in the past. This time I am going to use a few main poses and draw multiple themes/outfits for them (similar to how Rachel at Paper Thin Personas works). This will (hopefully) enable me to draw new series more quickly than in the past because I don't need to redraw the base, which is the most difficult part for me.
So, what do you think? Can you stomach some more paper dolls?
