IGWRT's Sunday-Mini Challenge "The Artist"

doll  by Amber Robinson
The Artist

Drifting in and out of fairytales
inspiration nuzzles its way 
from Disney to anime,
as with labor pains
upon my fingertips
I stitch and sew,
nip and tuck,
become Creator of my muse.

conceptual sketch by Amber Robinson
 The creative process always fascinates me.  I found the conceptual sketches to be as exciting if not more so than the soft sculpted dolls.  I was truly amazed how many of these high school students were able to successfully carry out their initial idea.

This is for Imaginary Garden with Real Toads "dolls".  This is my third poem for the prompt as I couldn't choose just one doll! :)

Her sketch is just exquisite and provides another side to the dolls personality, while your words guide us through the process.
