I was very excited to see The Black Apple’s Emily Martin has put out a new book on paper dolls! Available for pre-order here which I will be doing very shortly. I’ve been a fan of The Black Apple since my first etsy encounter where I purchased numerous prints in one hit and I still have them hanging on my walls today! One thing that’s really cool is seeing how much her style and technique has really developed over the years, along with her growing fame (she has even appeared on Martha Stewart)!
Anyway I must say the recent work she has done for her “Lost on the Midway” exhibition has been really AMAZING. Here are a few of the pieces which really made me “Aww”.
I think I love this group photo the best, she worked on several smaller pieces for the exhibition like the super cute siamese dolls, ink drawings and pencil sketches. Sigh. So much pretty! Check out Emily’s blog “Inside a Black Apple” for more inspirational goodness. Kx
