Tickle Me Smitten

Look at these darkly wondrous lil goodies that totally tickled my Fatuitous fanny this week! Feels SOOo good to find things that make me smile, laugh and pine away for one!!

~Exquisite Corpse Doll~

Look at the cover of the newest ADQ- Art Doll Quarterly, February 2010. I am so kRaZy over this cover doll.

This doll was designed by two different artists' each making a different component in separate work spaces! They had general guidelines set before they started but how amazing is this doll that they constructed. I AM SUCH A SMITTEN, KITTEN~ ( besides the fact that my dear friend Marie Patterson (Studio) has her doll pictured 4x inside! Go Marie (hope she autographs it for me;)!!

Ok, Next on my Tickled Smitten list is: Tim Burton's Tragic Toys for Girls & Boys Series.. Sweetly Spook-a-licious!

I just collected my first set from my free ebay bucks certificate and they arrived today!!! Miss Janell turned me onto these sweet & spooky lil characters with lil sourly sweet stories in the book, written by Tim Burton. I will leave you to learn more about the sweet & silly characters but the one in the middle is "Stain Boy"- What's not to love I ask!??

~I excitedly look forward to adding the rest of the crew over time~

Filmmaker Tim Burton is known for his unique ability to mix intelligent wit with highly original visual intrigue.
In this wonderful little volume, Burton gives birth to a cast of gruesomely sympathetic children--misunderstood outcasts who struggle to find love and belonging in their cruel, cruel worlds, where destruction and misery lurk in every corner....Burton's lovingly lurid illustrations convey both the sweetness and tragedy of his macabre, partly human creations.

My final Tickled Smitten is this darkely divinely designed Kookshi doll original made by Janell Berryman.
While visiting Janell in Oregon, I snapped this up and snuck it in my suitcase. Yep, I STOLE it. I knew if I told her I wanted to buy it she would just give it to me (she is too nice to me, I tell you). So, I stole it and just paypal'd her the money. he he he~

Now, go google-a-away my sweet and spooky friends and gets yours!

Isn't the cover page one of ADO artist, Sheri DeBow and her partner? It looks amazing! Hmmm...I dunno, I swear I've seen some of Tim's toys over at a place called Forbidden Planet--a big Comics emporium on Broadway, here for months! Love his stuff!

Holy crap, what a cool bunch of doll stuff! I heart everything Tim Burton, he reminds me so of Edward Gorey; black and white creepy delightful animated Heaven!

Those Burton figures are the cutest!! And the latest ADQ magazine is wonderful! Yay Marie for being in it all over!! One of my friends (Gina) is in it too, and I did have her sign it. I'd love to have Marie sign mine too! *Sigh* one day I'll see everyone...maybe soon!?

Oh my......I must visit more often.....the time missed from here is my loss. Finding someone else who thinks figurative creations should be delightfully demented is a treat. I want to come back in the next life and be related to Tim Burton......thanks for the scoop!

Colleen said...

That cover is quite fantastic. Really fun and unique.
