New Doll Artists DVD!

I'm excited to announce that the release of a new DVD documentary that I was thrilled to be a part of! It's called "The World of the Doll Artist".
I was chosen along with six other artists, Richard and Jodi Creager, Nancy Wiley, Olga Roehl, Shelly Thornton and Reina Mia Brill . We were each interviewed at the 2008 NIADA conference in Vegas, about what inspires us, how we got started, our design techniques, and more. The video includes the interviews and up close photos of our work. I'm really excited to have been a part of this!I have to admit, my first thought when I viewed the video was, "geez..do I really look like that"??!! LOL!
It's a fun informative video that I highly recommend....(My shamless self promotion)!!
You can find out more about this DVD and information on buying it from Choices at www.choicesvideo.net or 1-800 570-5400.
You can view a trailer on youtube,under The World of the Doll Artist, I can't seem to figure out how to get it on my post, but you can also see the trailer at the Choices web site.
I have little goblins playing with my brain at the moment, but when my brain starts working again, maybe I can figure out how to get the video clip on my blog!!
Happy haunting, Gail

Tristan Robin Blakeman said...

congratulations! that's terrific! I'm not a dollmaker - but I may have to get a copy so I can say "I know the artist" LOL.

I know what you mean about seeing yourself on screen. I was on HGTV's Simply Quilts a few times, and each time I viewed it, it thought, "geesh. I thought I was at least KINDA cute." LOL

Choices, Inc. said...

Be sure to check out the new Facebook page just created for the DVD. It will be a source of news and community for dollmakers everywhere. Just go to Facebook and look for The World of The Doll Artist group page.

Gail Lackey said...

Thanks Choices inc, I'll be sure to check it out.
Oh I know Tristan, Isn't it funny to see yourself! I'm consoled by the fact that my friends agree it doesn't look like me, and I'm afraid I will be forced to search out a photo to post that is more the "real" me! Just to make myself feel better!
Hugs, Gail
