Doll Repaint - Michael Jackson by noeling Doll Repaint - Michael Jackson by noeling

As with many of you, Michael Jackson's sudden death was a devastating loss. I adore his music and artistry and have collected his albums through the years. Incidentally, I also collected a few 12-inch Michael Jackson dolls. As a tribute to his legacy, I have decided to transform one of them into Michael Jackson's look in his "Black or White" musical performance. His song "Black or White" sends a very powerful message about embracing racial diversity and I thought that I would create a doll befitting of his iconic image.

The doll underwent extensive hairstyling and partial hair rerooting, as the the doll originally had hair only along the hairline. Next, was to transform the doll's face to capture Jackson's essence particularly from the "Black or White" video.

Repaint is a new form of pop art, wherein the doll's face is treated like a three dimensional canvas, with the added challenge of painting within a very small area and an even greater challenge of recreating a real person's likeness. Since dolls are basically miniature pieces, brush strokes and shading have to be very controlled and precise.

-- acrylic paint and ultra fine brushes

Fantastic! You took such care into this and it came out wonderfully. That's exactly what Michael was all about... painstaking patience and practice that metamorphoses into beautiful art. Wonderful tribute, I love it. No... I ADORE it. It's awesome.

Hi,

I need your help because I love your work. I am working on a project that I've launched on the website of the heal the world foundation. I'm looking for Michael Jackson fans and artists for an artbook. It's non profit work because all the money is going to a childrens hospice from the red cross.

I'm looking for art and the permission to use it once for only this goal. One book will go to Michaels children to show them some support also. I respect copyrights and I will credit you in the book.

If you are willing to help you can find more information in my journal.

Keep Michael's message to heal the world alive!

Thanks in advance,

Anne Peters
