My George .. . . in Drag

Some of you may recognize this guy. He's often associated with
Mt. Vernon, cherry trees and US one dollar bills.

He's rarely associated with paper dolls , dresses and gold tulle ... . .
which is just what I felt he needed. After all, we all need to have
some fun and play dress up occasionally.
The spring edition of Art Doll Quarterly agreed with me.
They've featured my George in Drag paper doll in their Spring 2010 edition.
It was such a kick to find it in my mailbox yesterday .. . flip through and
see my little GW in all his froufy silver / gold / tulle glory on page 104.

They've even declared my work to be the inspiration for a new department at
Art Doll Quarterly and have encouraged readers to submit " Paper Personas .. .
over-the-top imaginative interpretations of the human form."

What a giggle ... .
I just had to share this.

Queen Elizabeth drag!!!

I've never bought a doll magazine in my life ... but I'm picking up this one on my next trip to Michaels.

Can I take a visit in your head sometime?

Congratulations! I think he looks real pretty. They did wear ruffles, so it's not totally out of character either.

He is so sylish...and I think the skirt is very flattering to his bowed legs. Just great, J. I'll have to pick up that issue. I love how you've inspired others to create paper personas too. Congratulations.

what would Martha say? of course she wore the pants in the family, so I am sure she knew and approved. Such a whimsical and creative George.
