“Doll Nut,” “Neo Polly Tan,” “Pam Cake” & “Ceasar Sally.”

I’ve been meaning to do a post on boopsiedaisy for awhile now. I stumbled across her on Etsy and instantly fell in love with her kitschy and frankly quite bizarre fine art prints. I love the injection of pure color, her sense of childlike whimsy mixed with an LA-Halloween-creepshow kind of vibe. Dolls’ heads mixed with food? (Her fantastic “Who’s on the Menu?” series) Crazy original and crazy cool. All her prints have cleverly punned names, too. I’m dying to collect some of her work, the hard part is deciding which prints to pick up.

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:

“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!
