He Who Slumbers

I made a Little Nemo doll for the awesome folks over at Locust Moon Comics, who were kind enough to place me at #8 in the Locust Moon Top 40 towards the beginning of this month. I really like their shop and how involved they are with multiple projects; it's very inspiring and being mentioned on their blog was an honor. 

This version of Nemo deviates slightly from Winsor McCay's original renderings. In addition to being entombed in a lightly-altered cigar box (painting over pyrographed text is a doozy), he has pose-able joints and - albeit mighty delicate - fingers that can be positioned accordingly. Overall, Nemo's construction was a sedate, enjoyable task.

Also, under all of those clothes, he has a lumpy little butt.
