I’ve been checking out Pinkytoast’s art and dolls for awhile now. I love the big-eyed characters, her use of whimsy and color, the sense of fantasy, and also the darkness and edge she gives to something that could come off as overly childlike. She has a range of characters from her Tattoo Girls to her Sweet Tooth Girls, and she’s always coming up with something new. A few of my many favorites:
Tie Up My Heart Circus Girl
Twilight and a Midnight Swan
Little Tattoo Mermaid
Sweet Ginger Heart
“Living and working in Brooklyn, NY, Pinkytoast…has a soft spot for all things, (well, most things) sweet and sour. Her original paintings, dolls, and drawings are peppered with pinks, sour pouts, big eyes, raindrops, baby doll dresses, twins, moon balloons, and flying bananas. [Her art]…is inspired by retro kitsch, fairy tales, little kiddles, mod fashion, blythe, dollfie, vintage rag dolls, sad clowns and circus shows, the melancholy of goth, and all things pink.”
Pinkytoast’s art is available for purchase at Etsy, the hardest part is choosing what to get!
