today’s tattooed man

I love this toile. I got a remnant of it off of Etsy, way back when I started making these fellows. I have now cut it all up. There are a few more dolls in the pipeline with this toile design and then all done.

I have been overwhelmed by the news coming out of Japan. I can hardly tear myself away from the newsfeeds. Some of you might know that I have a brother in Japan, but he lives in Kyoto which was unaffected by the earthquakes shaking. My heart goes out to all the suffering people.

  1. I’m so glad your brother is okay. The news coming from Japan is awful to watch…makes me feel like anything I say or do would ever be enough.

  2. Yes, the ‘Ring of Fire’ suffering has been immense. I have family in New Zealand and it’s hard to believe that anything could be much worse than the Christchurch earthquake, but this is almost impossible to comprehend.
    But I came here to comment on the face of this tattooed man… he has such beautifully defined features, I love the way you ‘draw’ with your thread Mimi :)

  3. What a truly unique and quirky idea – making tattooed dolls. I think they’re fabulous! I love your style of line and shape, you have quite a talent ^-^


  4. Do you think you will be doing patterns for your tattoed man?
    I just love your work. You inspire me every day.
