Spreading the word!
Artist Belinda Seymour suggested this theme and we definitely think it’s a great idea!
After all, who doesn’t love a circus?
There are so many ideas for creating an art doll when you think about the circus!
This traveling company of performers offers so many doll options: clowns, acrobats, trained animals, trapeze acts, the ringmaster, musicians, the bearded lady, tightrope walker, jugglers, unicyclists and much more. Games of luck … cotton candy … what’s your interpretation of the circus?
Toss your hat into the ring! Results will be published in our Spring 2014 issue.
Deadline: September 15, 2013
Another theme suggested by Belinda Seymour was Mermaids and we love it! What a better way to welcome in summer than with a plethora of beautiful mermaids? These lovely and mysterious aquatic creatures with the upper body of a human and the tail of a fish have been depicted in opera, paintings, books, films, and comics. So why not dolls? There are a lot of folktales related to mermaids that would make for interesting research! We can’t wait to see your creative submissions.
Results will be published in our Summer 2014 issue.
Deadline: December 15, 2013
Inspired by Judith Thibaut's doll "George in Drag" (Spring 2010) and in the spirit of Lynne Perrella's book Beyond Paper Dolls, we've created a new department in Art Doll Quarterly that will feature one fabulous, artistic and beautifully executed paper doll in each issue. We're looking for expressive paper personas crafted with innovative techniques and art mediums -- over-the-top imaginative interpretations of the human form. Send us your thought-provoking and innovative paper personas for publication consideration. Please note "Paper Personas" on your submission.
