9"x12" 2013 calendar reproductions of all 12 pieces in the series. 3'x2' prints made for the gallery show.
A year and a half in the making, the “DOLLS” series consisted of 12 pin-up models, embellished and adorned with my hand drawn illustrations super-imposed as tattoos. Each model began untouched by ink, with the exception of a few small tattoos here and there. The imposition of the illustrations came later after the photo compositing. Each full size print from the series is 36in” x 24in”.
After the completion of the series, a calendar was assembled for 2013 via crowd funding. Then, on January 26th, 2013, the full size prints were showcased in a gallery opening at Cella Gallery in North Hollywood, California. For the gallery opening, a collaborative installation was created between TG and Samir Evol of the Seventh Letter Crew, and Vallure Vodka sponsored the opening, serving TG themed cocktails to complement the occasion.
