Saga Dolls

Okay so I LOVE Saga.  It is by far my favorite comic in years.  I've always been a huge Brian K. Vaughan fan because he puts a lot of soul into his writing...and I really love that about this comic...plus Fiona Staples artwork on this is AMAZING.  Like anyone who takes a cursory glance at any of my Saga comics is simply blown away by her artistry.  That said, I was inspired.  I'm usually pretty busy making dolls for the cash dogs...but I had 7 hours today...and I made these...and I love them. LOVE them.  I don't know what to do with them, but I'm super happy with how they turned out...especially Marko.




If you're unfamiliar with what they look like, here's the cover from the first issue.  They're like awesome alien hipsters.

    I am CRAZY about these. I love Saga and I love these. You are genius.

  3. I get that. If you ever feel like you could part with them, I'd happily donate the money to your favorite charity. Or send a check directly to Brian and Fiona.

  7. I just finished reading #7 as well where I was directed to your blog. Awesome work on the dolls.

    Do you have access to site statistics? I am curious to see how many hits you received once your letter was published.

  11. dear gia,

    i just wanted to share with you: i can't get over how amazing these dolls are. the colors, the clothes, and the detailing (marko's ears!! the green streaks in alana's hair!): i LOVE how your love for saga is conveyed through the ridiculously amazing talent you have for making dolls. though it makes me super sad you're not selling them, it's all the more admirable that you're protecting them. okay, i probably sound like a crazy person, but just wanted to share that seeing your dolls totally cheered me up, so thank you for that. :)

  13. these are, like, totally awesome!
    could you perhaps post the pattern for Marko's horns?
    the other parts I understand - I think - but I definitely need some pointers with the horns...

    ReplyDelete
  14. Croc! Thanks so much for your interest. It's funny, the horns are the only thing I made a note of!

    Okay I hope this makes sense.

  15. Just started reading Saga and noticed your mention in the last few pages of issue #5. Awesome work. My wife and her mother both crochet in the down time and I'll be passing this on to them.
