Anthropomorphic… Say What?

I'm up for a challenge and here's the sneak peek!
That is... Art Doll Quarterly's doll challenge: "anthropomorphic"

My doll is titled" "right church… wrong pew!"
I have the body armature ready to cover with handmade
mulberry papers and paper maché paste,
the head is sculpted with paper clay (what else?)
I hope to incorporate some paper clay "tail feathers" on his little rump,
a rusty heart and pieces of this-and-that.
This "bird boy" is standing in a natural fiber nest,
which is balancing on a wooden bird-stand.
My hope: a whimsical delight!


  1. Love this Daryle! Your dolls have such beautiful character! I find your work so inspirational!

  2. He has the most adorable face ever! I have never taken part in the ADQ challenges, but I intend to this time.... better get my skates on!
    I've not come across pic-monkey - off to try :)
