I co-published this magazine, and I am the editor-in-chief.
I wrote many of the tutorials myself. In my opinion, this publication
is indespensable not only to beginners, but also to accomplished doll
artists. Honestly, I set out to offer the best magazine that I could
publish, with tutorials from some of the most respected artists in our
field. Buy one issue to see how you like it, and I know that you'll
want to buy all of the other issues after that! Unfortunately, due to
the fact that we didn't have enough advertisers, and also because I
had a difficult pregnancy, the magazine was forced to go on hiatus for
the year 2012, and we also didn't complete our six issues for 2011.
However, Doll Customizer Magazine is NOT DEAD, and it will resume publication
in the future. For now, you are welcome to order back issues of the
magazine - there are four issues total, and QUANTITIES ARE LIMITED,
SO THESE ARE ONLY AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!!
