Ever since seeing the Kokeshi Doll exhibit that ran at the Subtext Gallery, I knew I had to create my own. I ordered 2 blanks from Christina Conway, the curator for the show. The egg body ended up being too big in proportion to the head for my character based on the illustration I already did titled, "An Orange Is Always Good In A Pinch". So I cut a smaller ball and he looked the way I wanted him to. I plan on doing a different character using the egg body supplied.
