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.

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.

-- acrylic paint and ultra fine brushes

This celebrity doll repaint was inspired by an outtake from the film Gone With The Wind that never made it to the final film.

I used a 16-inch Scarlett O'hara doll here produced by Robert Tonner Doll company. I completely removed factory facial painting and hand painted it to more faithfully replicate Vivien Leigh as Scarlett from that particular scene.

The doll's hair has been completely restyled.

MEETING LINDSAY WAGNER (1970S THE BIONIC WOMAN)

Last June 9th, I had the great opportunity of meeting my childhood idol Lindsay Wagner again. And although not quite her birthday (June 22) yet, I had the privilege of presenting her another pencil portrait that I did many years ago. I had intended to have Lindsay autograph the portrait for myself, but after seeing the portrait, she asked if I could send her a scanned copy of the drawing. She was very pleased with the drawing and there was no way I would have her settle for a scanned copy, so I gladly offered it to her. After all it was her beauty and radiant personality that inspired me to draw in the first place as a young child. I went home that day filled with immense joy and blessing knowing that I have a part of Lindsay and she a part of me.

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.

Jack Sparrow is clearly one of my all-time favorite movie characters, perfectly portrayed by the brilliant Johnny Depp.
Although, I've done a few Jack Sparrow dolls previously, no two are ever alike. This one in particular is unique for its scale. This is the first Jack Sparrow I have created on a 1/6 scale (12 inch). Also, this repaint is based from the latest installment of POTC , "On Stranger Tides".

I used a Mattel Jack Sparrow doll for this recreation. 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 extensive hair restyling - each dredlock has been carefully created to match the character's. In addition, I hand painted Jack's sparrow tattoo and his branded "P" mark.
