After returning from the BJDC in Austin, I had the pleasure of sharing part of my return flight with Sharon Wright and her wonderful daughter. Sharon is an amazing photographer, and all around interesting person. Plus, she is the editor of Stand, a new fashion and ball-jointed doll lookbook, which you can purchase on this website.
This post is not just about my brush with doll celebrity; it's mainly to urge you to visit this fantastic new resource. She has the most up-to-date information on there, sorted into fashion dolls (and she includes information on resin fashion dolls as well) and BJDs (focus tends to be on American artists, which is great--especially since Den of Angels tends to provide most of the news on dolls from Asian countries, and not so much on American artists, in my humble opinion).
You'll want to be sure to check out the Tutorials section, which is filled with lots of great resources, and if you're a photographer, why not submit your photos for the next lookbook? And, as always, I'd recommend supporting this site by purchasing hard copies of both volumes of the Stand Lookbooks currently available. I did, and I'll be sure to review them once they are in hand. They are reasonably priced--$22.95 each--and I've only heard positive reviews from Blurb's printing service, so I'm really excited to have them on the way.
