But I've repainted just a few of the Integrity Genes; the sculpt is entirely different in many ways from the original Ashton Drake Gene, and for that reason seems like an entirely different doll to me. Integrity's sculpt is symmetrical and tight; there is little freedom to play with the features in the same way the looser Ashton Drake Gene sculpt allows.
More Gene repaints of both Integrity and Ashton Drake are in the works---I'm not entirely sure anyone out there still collects repainted Gene in her many guises, but if you do, perhaps you'll find a new girl to add to your collection. VIVIENNE? She's on eBay right here, in all her red-garbed glory....

I know several repaint artists who, in the last decade, have had their daughters join their dolly enterprises as they grew older and began to demonstrate their own talents with dolls. We will no doubt have many second generation OOAK artists joining the world of repaints and fashion in the next decade!
For all those OOAK dolly moms out there, I invite you to visit artist Tammy Mae Moon's new blog, 'Creatrix', which seeks to inspire and connect artists who are moms, and discusses the rewards and challenges of juggling art and motherhood. It is not a doll-related blog, but is geared towards all who seek to balance motherhood and the artsy muse inside us. Tammy just posted an interview with me, FROG---and several images of PRINCESS as I've painted her. Click here to visit...
(The pic shown here is called 'Sleeping Dollies'---I never realized when I painted it that Kitty and I would someday share a dolly venture, but it certainly immortalizes the moment she fell in love with dolls, carrying this certain dolly around with her constantly---can you spot Simply Gene Blonde?!)

This is DINAH DRYAD, daughter of a Wood Nymph, a wild little girl that PRINCESS and I dreamed up and are bringing to you tonight on eBay.
Formerly Clawdeen Wolf, you can read here on her auction layout about how she acquired that crazy green hair and lost her wolfish ears! (The photos are very storybookish; we used a 3D painting created by PRINCESS in 2008 for the background). Her opening bid is a little higher than usual, due to all...that...time...spent on her hair....
