Love Squared

The fabulous Monica Magness has completed the art doll "Love Squared" and sent her off to the magazine Art Doll Quarterly.


Monica created her body and invited artists on the internet to send in 2" squares from which she made the doll's skirt. The whole purpose of this project was/is to raise money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The doll will eventually be auctioned or raffled off to one lucky winner. Can you imagine owning this doll?!! Talk about a show piece!

I sent in two squares, one of which I've been using as my profile picture at the top of my blog. It's the orange one, just under the doll's purse. The second square will be inlcuded in a wall hanging Monica is making from all the other extra squares that were sent in.


Art Doll Quarterly will be featuring the doll in an article in a future issue but right now you can see more pictures of her here.

Wow wow wow!
What an incredibly awesome doll!

And how cool that you're a part of it!

re: that art car on my blog... I'm not sure who it belonged to. It was just in the parking lot. If you want to do it you should totally go for it! It was fun and drew a LOT of attention!
