Sketchbook Project
The Art House Sketchbook Project made it into the Brooklyn Daily Eagle.

and wearing a Turkish evil eye bead (nazar bonjuk) on the wrist.

And she ponders things such as how does Barbie breath in that stupid blister pack or does she think her jewelry protects her from the evil eye. OMG - I clicked the link for the Bklyn Daily Eagle and my sketchbook was laying there. Looks like eight little squares on cover that are actually cutouts. Lol, your posts are better than that first cup of coffee.

I am hoping the bead protects me ;) but yes, how does barbie breath lol! What I am pondering is what fabric to use to make a penis ahem! it will be the dickhead from the disastrous dinner.

Hey Girlie, Just checkin in. I saw that Brooklyn article. I still think it so weird our stuff is traveling around to so many cool places. My sketchbook has a more interesting life than I do!

I love the doll. It's a very cool idea. I've always identified in a strange way with dolls.
