I thought the Mattel 12 inch Jack Sparrow was a fantastic sculpt of Johnny Depp and so I decided to transform the doll into the iconic actor.

The inset photo at the bottom right shows the doll in its original factory state.

As with all my creations, I completely strip the original factory paint on each of the dolls, and completely repaint the facial features in, paying attention to accuracy of likeness and lifelike expressions. The doll also underwent dramatic hair restyling. Also I hand painted a total of 9 tattoos.

Repaint is a new form of pop art, wherein the doll's face is treated like a three dimensional canvas, with the added challenge of painting within a very small area . Since dolls are basically miniature pieces, brush strokes and shading have to be very controlled and precise.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the classic favorite "Breakfast at Tiffany's. As a special tribute, I am pleased to create a custom face up of Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly.

Full facial repaint and shading as well as extensive hair style make over to replicate the features of Ms. Hepburn as Holly as she appeared in the movie.

These Tonner doll sculpts are not the easiest in terms of bringing out the essence of the characters/actors portrayed. But as an artist, I believe in challenging oneself in order to grow.

The dolls used are 15 1/2 inch and 17 1/2 inch Bella and Edward dolls by Robert Tonner. Full facial repaint and shading as well as extensive hair style make over to replicate the features of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, particularly as seen in the Twilight sequel, Eclipse. I wanted to specifically capture the angst filled expression of Edward from the poster.

The inset photos on the bottom show the mass produced version of the Edward Cullen and Bella Swan doll as they were originally released.

With the release of Tonner Company's New Moon-inspired Edward and the Birthday Bella Swan with a brand new sculpt, my inspiration to create continues, especially with the challenge of repainting the brand new Bella sculpt released by the manufacturer just this year.

Full facial repaint and shading as well as extensive hair style make over to replicate the features of the characters and the delicate nuances of their emotions evoked particularly based on the Bella's paper cut birthday scene

Well, it has both been a relief and tremendous satisfaction to finally pay proper tribute to the People's Princess. I am pleased to share my latest creation created out of a Franklin Mint Princess Diana. It has been so much fun undertaking this project.

This photo was taken last year shortly after creating this custom repainted 17-inch Elvira which sold on ebay last year and is now in a private collection. However, since Halloween is approaching, I thought I'd share this image here.

This doll underwent hair restyling to better replicate Elvira's. As with all my custom repainted dolls, I remove the original factory makeup. I then repaint the character's features paying attention to precision and accuracy as well as true to life facial expression.

I have had requests to feature my art pictured next to me, mostly for the purpose of getting a sense of scale of the dolls. so here is another one.

I have previously created doll repaints of Jack Sparrow, Elizabeth Swann and Will Turner. However, I have always created them at very separate times and have never been physically together as a group. This time, I've decided to create a group of four of the main characters from the movie. Also, the Jack, Will and Elizabeth dolls here are somewhat different from the ones I've created in the past with regards to facial expression hair styling and overall detail. This is the first time I recreate Tia Dalma's likeness in a doll.

As with all my creations, I completely strip the original factory paint on each of the dolls, and completely repaint the facial features in, paying attention to accuracy of likeness and lifelike expressions. They each underwent extensive hair styling as well. The Jack doll features a hand painted tattoo as well as hand crafted authentic hair ornaments. The design on his bandana was also handpainted. Tia Dalma and Jack were both given authentic dreadlocks. It took several weeks to complete this group due to the amount of work involved.
