IO

I juggle many things all at once and I always feel like there’s never enough time in a day. I’ve been working on this project for a while now and it is finally complete! I am so happy with the way it came out. This soft doll was made from drawing of a character known as IO, made by amazing, artist/ photographer Deniz Kabuloglu  www.facebook.com/kabulogluart .  I feel very honored to have been asked to work on this amazing art work and bring IO to life.

Here are some pictures I took as I worked sewing and putting IO together.  Forgive the photo quality, I took these pictures late at night. Plus, I am also still working on improving my photography skills as you can see.

I always start off by creating a pattern and making sure I match the size and dimensions as much as possible to what I see in the drawing. The hardest part was trying to match the colors, sort of brush strokes in the fabric. I tried several ideas but I finally got the right colors by using fabric paint.
